Research Description

Research in the Azizi Lab is focused on understanding the physiology and function of the musculoskeletal system. This work aims to elucidate how the basic properties of muscle cells ultimately limit an animal's maximum performance. This research spans multiple levels of biological organization and independent research projects may focus on in vitro studies of muscle tissue or mechanical studies of animal movement.

Requirements to Participate

Strong interest in physiology. Comfortable working with animals. A multi-quarter commitment preferred. Students are expected to participate in weekly lab meetings.

Time Commitment per Week

10 hrs/wk
