Matthew Alexander, PhD

Matt joined the lab in July 2008. He works on microRNAs 
that are dysregulated in muscular dystrophies. His goal is
 to understand the function of these microRNAs in normal 
and diseased muscle in hopes that manipulating expression 
that can ameliorate muscular dystrophy associated symptoms.
 When not in the lab, he enjoys movies, trivia contests, 
and the occasional run.
