The overall goal of my research program is to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms governing skeletal muscle growth and muscle adaptation to changes in functional demands. My laboratory is especially interested in understanding the mechanisms governing myonuclear accretion, and in understanding the relationship between nutritional manipulations and myofiber growth. My laboratory has the expertise to employ immunocytochemistry, molecular biology, fluorescence microscopy, image analysis, tissue culture and protein chemistry techniques to answer questions related to muscle growth.
