Focus Areas

The Cell and Regenerative Physiology Laboratory led by Gary C. Sieck, Ph.D., is working to develop novel therapeutic approaches to counter altered cell signaling that affects muscle physiology including the effects of accidental hypothermia, aging, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, critical illness, heart failure, ischemia-reperfusion injury, neuromuscular disease and spinal cord injury. The research team is moving toward this goal through these research focus areas:
