Description of Research
My research is focus on the study of excitation-contraction coupling in skeletal muscle. Specifically, I examine conduction velocity across skeletal muscle membranes. I also study the charge movement of the DHPR, one of the receptors necessary for muscle contraction, and how it relates to calcium release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum
