Dr. Laneuville conducts research on the molecular mechanisms involved in physical inactivity and joint mobility restrictions.

She combines high throughput sequencing methods and functional analyses to characterize gene expression in experimental and human models. 

Her main objectives are:  to develop experimental models for understanding molecular mechanisms involved; and to apply findings to restore mobility and joint movement to its natural range of motion.
