Muscle Biology Laboratory

The research of the Muscle Biology Laboratory in the Department of Physical Therapy at GSU is focused on understanding the cellular-level mechanisms that explain the impaired skeletal muscle function (i.e., strength) that results from the following conditions:

  • Work/exercise-induced and traumatic injury
  • Estrogen deficiency
  • Aging
  • Fatigue
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Combined muscle and bone injuries
