Sofia Stenler


Postdoctoral Research Scientist

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Professor Matthew Wood’s lab in the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at the University of Oxford. I currently work with novel therapies for neuromuscular diseases such as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and Spinal Muscular Atopy (SMA). One of my focus areas is exploring the novel CRISPR technique for gene editing, as well as for upregulation of gene expression, to alleviate the pathology of these diseases. Another focus is the possibility of targeting episomal effector proteins to regulate muscle regeneration.

I am originally from Sweden, where I did my PhD studies at the Karolinska Institute. There, I investigated the minicircle vector for nonviral gene transfer, with special focus on optimization and on delivery to muscle.
