Muscle Physiology Laboratory
The mission of the Muscle Physiology Laboratory located within the McKnight Brain Institute (MBI) at the University of Florida is to non-invasively quantify the plasticity of skeletal muscle from disease, disuse, and aging. This area of research is key to the fields of physical therapy, physiology, rehabilitation, muscle biology, aging, and imaging. Drs. Krista Vandenborne, PT, PhD, and Glenn Walter, PhD, lead the other lab members consisting of several PhD students through the Rehabilitation Science Program and Interdisciplinary Program in Biomedical Sciences as well as individuals interested in pursuing a post-doctoral fellowship investigating plasticity of the neuromusculoskeletal system.
