Our studies utilize a wide range of techniques that allow us to probe these questions at all levels of complexity, ranging from the single molecule to the whole animal. In this integrative approach we incorporate biochemistry, immunohistochemistry, animal imaging (18FPET/CT, MRI), MR spectroscopy, live cell calcium and ROS imaging, whole muscle force measurements, indirect calorimetry, voluntary and endurance exercise studies and mass spectroscopy/multi-reaction monitoring (to quantify post-translational modifications). We also work closely with the core facilities at Baylor College of Medicine to implement the most cutting edge technology in our research.
We are funded by the National Institutes of Health, American Heart Association and Muscular Dystrophy Association.
