Alex Piacentini graduated from his undergrad at Binghamton University in 2016 with a BS in Biological Sciences. He then went to Tufts University for a Master’s in Conservation Medicine. This research focused on wildlife conservation and bringing multiple scientific specialties together to encourage collaboration across disciplines. Alex is very interested in the connections within biological systems and using them in novel ways to solve complex, multifactorial problems.
Suzie Buono discusses the work she and her team have done to provide an example of treating a dominant disease by targeting both alleles, suggesting that this strategy may be applied to other dominant diseases.
Matt Borkowski of Aurora Scientific discusses the latest software update for their Dynamic Muscle Control and Analysis Software, DMC LabBook.
Experts discuss the A-to-Z of assessing muscle performance and contractile function in single muscle fibers.
Chris Rand discusses the updated 200A Olfactometer from Aurora Scientific. He walks through setting up the system before sharing best practices, all while demonstrating the integral functions of the system.
Experts discuss how to characterize the mechanical properties of tendon using a novel dual-mode lever system.
Learn how to characterize complete muscle function by combining lengthening, shortening and isotonic contraction tests with traditional isometric twitch and tetanus measurements.
An essential webinar for all muscle researchers interested in methodology, best-practices, and techniques for in-vivo, in-vitro, and in-situ muscle experimentation.
