  Honors Program:   Understanding Muscle Development, Disease and Regeneration --- "We seek to define the networks of genes and proteins that govern development, disease and regeneration of the heart and other muscle tissues. Through gene expression profiling, coupled with gain- and loss-of-function approaches in mice, we have discovered collections of novel muscle-specific genes encoding proteins and long non-coding RNAs with central roles in myriad processes of muscle tissues, including myoblast fusion, nerve-muscle interactions, contractility, muscle growth, sarcomere assembly and inter-tissue signaling. The functions of selected new genes in muscle development and disease and the insights they have provided into the biology of muscle will be discussed. Prospects for correcting muscle disease through CRISPR-mediated genomic editing will also be presented." , Eric Olson, PhD Professor and Chairman of Molecular Biology UTSW Dallas, TX Annie and Willie Nelson Professorship in Stem Cell Research; Pogue Distinguished Chair in Research on Cardiac Birth Defects; The Robert A.
