SA Research Chair in Integrative Skeletal Muscle Physiology, Biology and Biotechnology

​​This Chair, situated in the Department of Physiology, aims to close the gap between an in-depth understanding of the biological effects of trauma, inflammation and disease on skeletal muscle cells and the well-known ability of muscle to gain strength and regenerate from injury. Postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows study these aspects of skeletal muscle at three complementary levels: whole body physiology (real humans), cellular and molecular biology (tissue and cells in culture dishes), and biotechnology (manipulation and regeneration). This multi-layered combination of expertise is unique in South Africa and uncommon worldwide.
