Quotes

"I think of Myheart as a molecular crowbar that pries BRG1 off the genomic DNA and prevents it from manipulating genetic activity" said Dr. Chang
..." It makes sense to study the basis of skeletal muscle function, he adds, "because if we can reduce the fatigue, we could enable them to live independently longer and increase activity levels, which can improve their long-term prognosis."
...According to news reporting originating in Brisbane, Australia , by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "A multiscale approach that bridges the biophysics of the actin molecules at nanoscale and the biomechanics of actin filament at microscale level is developed and used to evaluate the mechanical performances of actin filament bundles. In order to investigate the contractile properties of skeletal muscle which is induced by the protein motor of myosin, a molecular model is proposed in the prediction of the dynamic behaviors of skeletal muscle based on classic sliding filament model."
...Engineering Associate Professor Naomi Chesler will embark upon a new collaborative research project to better understand heart function and failure. "This is unique opportunity to combine theoretical and the experimental approaches and to develop a collaboration with an Israeli investigator" Chesler says
