A computational modelling framework for understanding skeletal muscle adaptation

Musculoskeletal biomechanics is the analysis of how forces are transmitted through our bodies during locomotion. The main sources of force arise from locomotion that is driven by the skeletal muscles. Read more

Engineering skeletal muscle using a humanoid bioreactor platform

Commercial partner: . Devanthro GmbH. , Munich, Germany. Skeletal muscle is the largest organ system in the body by mass and is necessary to generate forces for movement and locomotion. Read more

Non-invasive phenotyping of muscle function using multi-nuclear MR

This interdisciplinary project combines biology, physics and engineering to uncover exciting information about skeletal muscle metabolism during ageing, through the development of innovative technology. Read more

Non-invasive phenotyping of muscle function using multi-nuclear MR

Commercial partner: . RAPID Biomedical GmbH. , Rimpar, Germany. Breathlessness, fatigue on exertion and exercise intolerance are common features of obesity, type II diabetes and heart failure. Read more

EASTBIO: Drug discovery: targeting the IGF axis for the prevention of muscle atrophy

This fully funded, 4-year PhD project is part of a competition funded by the. BBSRC EASTBIO Doctoral Training Partnership. About a third of elderly admissions to long-term health care facilities are due to frailty and inability to perform daily living activities. Read more

Defining the metabolic and neuromuscular mechanisms of skeletal muscle adaptation to reduced physical activity and subsequent recovery throughout adult lifespan

  Research Group: PENRG - Physiology Exercise and Nutrition Research Group
Physical inactivity is the 4th leading cause of death in the world. People with the highest prolonged sedentary time have greater chance of developing health problems such as cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes, and a greater risk of dying younger. Read more

A bottom-up approach to muscle mechanics

Muscles exhibit highly complex behaviour made up of thousands of individual muscle fibres, each with different properties, interacting with each other and the surrounding bio-mechanical structures. Read more
