Project Description

Skeletal muscle has a number of roles in the human body beyond locomotion. It is has a vital role in controlling the metabolic activity the organism. Muscle wasting is a key feature of many diseases including those of liver. The mechanisms by which muscle wastes in liver diseases is unknown as is its impact on the progression of liver pathology. The student will develop groundbreaking research into multi-organ interaction by investing muscle and liver in a liver disease model. The work is suitable for a highly motivated student interested in medically related topics focused on human health. The student will gain cutting edge training in stem cells biology, bio-informatics, molecular and cellular biology.
