WHAT WE DO Our research focus on studying the inner works of muscles – how they work and lead to diseases using human and wild animal models. OUR STRENGTHS We are proud of our collaborators and without their expertise, this lab will not function. Our lab does contain state-of-the art technologies that measure muscle performance, its metabolism and structure on macro and single cellular level. MUSCLE 101 Learn more about the workings of muscle, their contraction, how they are fueled, their structure and how they contribute to athletic performance. PROJECTS We can divide our research fields into four main categories, each with unique projects answering specific questions. These are: Nature or Nurture; Obesity, lifestyle and insulin resistance; Muscle weakness and Exercise-induced muscle pathologies.
