Project: Characterization of mechanical properties of muscle

Principal Investigator: Katherine A. Wilkinson, PhD

Lab investigates the neural response to stretch in a mouse model, and potential relationship between muscle inflammation, sex, and firing frequency. Individual work focuses on quantifying mechanical properties of the hind leg muscle in experimental and control groups. This research aims to address gaps in scientific knowledge of how muscular disease manifestation may vary across sexes.
