Research interests

My interest are cardiac and skeletal muscle in fish. I use a range of techniques to understand their development and function from molecular biology to electrophysiology.

Skeletal muscle:
In comparison to mammals, fish have different skeletal muscle fibres types (white, pink, red) and the majority of the fish species grew throughout their whole life. There are two process of muscle growth, hypertrophy (increase of fibre size) and hyperplasia (generation of new fibres) and currently these two processes are poorly understood. Therefore, our aim is to examine skeletal muscle from different developmental stages in cartilage and bony fish species to give insights into the ontogenetic mechanism of muscle development and the rule of the regulating factors.
