Lab Specific Information
His research explores the pathways and mechanisms involved in regulating skeletal muscle plasticity. Dr.
Fry’s lab utilizes several different experimental models, including
cell culture, rodent models as well as muscle samples from clinical
Skeletal muscle has a robust ability to
adapt following different environmental stimuli, such as inactivity,
increased load or injury.
understanding of the processes responsible contributing to muscle
plasticity can allow for the development of better therapies to address
clinical conditions characterized by loss of muscle mass or
degeneration/injury of the muscle.
