Human skeletal muscle contractile function and structure with a focus on cellular physiology and biology. Main areas of emphasis: 1) adaptation of skeletal muscle to a reduction in physical activity and exercise countermeasures during periods of disuse (aging and spaceflight), and 2) skeletal muscle adaptation to periods of overtraining and taper (reduced training/rest) as it relates to sports performance.
