Dr. Samantha Harris discusses the development of three new mouse models in her lab, engineered to target and replace specific myosin binding protein-C paralogs in muscle fibers and impact of their mutations on skeletal and cardiac muscle diseases.
Christopher Perry, PhD discusses how his laboratory aims to discover mechanisms by which metabolic dysfunction causes muscle weakness and apply these findings to develop new therapies for muscle disorders. Homira Osman, PhD provides a particular focus on leveraging scientific findings for practice and policy and linking trainees with patient communities.
While the overall benefits of exercise have been well documented, what exactly does exercise do for the brain? In this blog, we review two very recent publications that arrived at somewhat conflicting answers to this question.
Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a condition that arises from repeated head traumas, and can only be diagnosed after death. Learn more about the history behind this condition, current research, and potential ways to prevent CTE in this blog post, written by one of the Scientist.com STEM NIL Scholarship Winners.
Chris Rand discusses Aurora Scientific's 801C: Small Intact Muscle Apparatus. The device can be used for measuring muscle contractility and for other applications in fields like muscle physiology and cardiovascular science research.
InsideScientific recently interviewed Matt Borkowski, General Manager of Aurora Scientific, where he discussed his new role, the company's approach to innovation, and commitment to providing customer support through educational resources.
Sarah Greising, PhD answers top questions from her recent webinar focused on the pathophysiologic understanding of the skeletal muscle remaining following traumatic musculoskeletal injuries, specifically in large animal models.
The Muscle Health Research Centre (MHRC) is one of Canada's leading innovators in muscle physiology research. In this blog post, we finish our series of interviews with student researchers at the MHRC and learn more about their research objectives, findings, and goals.
This episode of Share Science features Chris Rand, MSc, sales and marketing manager at Aurora Scientific. In this interview, Chris shares Aurora Scientific’s history, their journey within the preclinical research world, and their advance into the neuroscience space.
The Muscle Health Research Centre (MHRC) is one of Canada's leading innovators in muscle physiology research. In this blog post, we continue our series of interviews with student researchers at the MHRC and learn more about their research objectives, findings, and goals.
The Muscle Health Research Centre (MHRC) is home to many researchers who push the boundaries of muscle physiology. In this blog post, we summarize an interview with three students from the Muscle Health Research Centre (MHRC) at York University.
The Muscle Health Research Centre (MHRC) is home to many researchers who push the boundaries of muscle physiology. For this blog, we summarize interviews with two professors from the MHRC who investigate the mechanisms of muscle weakness and fatigue: Christopher Perry and Arthur Cheng.
This episode of Share Science features Christopher Perry, PhD, an associate professor at York University’s School of Kinesiology & Health Science, who shares his career path, but also his ideas and goals of creating a contract research organization (CRO) to further help those with muscle disease and to provide more opportunities for his trainees.
