Testing multiple immunohistochemistry protocols, I was unsuccessful at identifying Tregulatory cells in human skeletal muscle samples. A total of 5 months was dedicated to this original project before I was reassigned to look into the presence of CD8+ cells in skeletal muscle. The new project proved to be fruitful as I was able to confidently identify CD8+ cells and analyze their presence in the process of skeletal muscle repair. Furthermore, the data I collected has be incorporated into a paper Dr. Robert Hyldahl is currently working on titled “Skeletal muscle inflammation following repeated bouts of lengthening contractions in humans.”
