DR Jonathan Davey


  • E3 ubiquitin ligase regulation of skeletal muscle function



  • Is a post-doctoral researcher focused on understanding the mechanisms that regulate muscle size and function in healthy adult skeletal muscle and in the contexts of disuse, cancer cachexia, and sarcopenia. His expertise is in genetic manipulation of fully developed skeletal muscle tissue via gene transduction combined with a quantitative proteomics and cell biology analysis of these interventions. He completed his B.Sc (Hons) at the University of New South Wales and with subsequent employment at The Garvan Institute of Medical Research. He undertook his PhD in adipocyte cell biology at the Garvan with Prof. David James and on completion took a position in the Muscle and Therapeutics Reseach Laboratory headed by Dr. Paul Gregorevic at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute.
