Regulating Calcium Handling In Skeletal Muscle Implications For Muscle Contraction, Injury And Repair, Ageing And Development

Grant number: DP0772781

Abstract

Understanding the mechanisms regulating calcium in skeletal muscle has important relevance for studying muscle growth and development, injury and repair, and for identifying therapeutic targets and potential therapies for ageing-related disorders, reconstructive surgery, sporting and workplace injuries, and muscle diseases. Combining cell physiology, fluorescence microscopy and digital imaging technologies for studying multicellular tissues such as skeletal muscle will enhance the international competitiveness of Australian biological research. The research will optimise development of gene delivery systems that may find eventual application for muscle wasting disorders and conditions where ..
