An essential webinar for all muscle researchers interested in methodology, best-practices, and techniques for in-vivo, in-vitro, and in-situ muscle experimentation.

As muscle researchers know, functional measurements and assays are the foundation of successful research and are a growing necessity for publication. However, choosing the right experimental technique to answer a broad array of questions can be a challenge.

In this exclusive webinar sponsored by Aurora Scientific, Drs. Christopher Ward and Ramzi Khairallah discuss methodology, best-practices, and show attendees how to perform basic in-vivo, in-situ, in-vitro experiments. Discussions focus on how these techniques can answer questions about animal phenotyping, compound screening, and be used to evaluate interventions and therapies longitudinally. In addition, they review how these techniques can be integrated with other whole animal physiology measurements, biological assays, and genetic tests to provide greater insights into muscle function.
