The overall focus of my research is to improve knowledge about how skeletal muscle is remodelled. Specifically, changes and regulation of protein kinetics during various circumstances i) exercise at various intensities, ii) immobilization, iii) feeding and nutrient supplementation, and vi) how these responses are affected by age, disease, and medications/hormones.
My main methodological interest is how stable isotope tracers are applied in research trials to determine the kinetics of structural proteins and the metabolic fates of nutrients and subsequently how sample analysis is performed on mass spectrometers.
