Design of applied human exercise studies; Histological analysis of human skeletal muscle biopsies

Main research areas

To understand the mechanism behind hypertrophy/atrophy and changes in fibre type composition in skeletal muscle with use and disuse. To understand age related changes in human skeletal muscle.


Current research

Our current research evolves around changes in myosin heavy chain isoform composition and muscle mass in skeletal muscle due to various types of exercise or inactivity. More specifically, we are looking into the influence of various growth factors in an attempt to understand pathways leading to changes in the size and phenotype of skeletal muscle.
