Ochala Group

Our research focuses on:

  • Understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms causing genetic muscle disorders (congenital myopathies and muscular dystrophies) and ageing syndromes
  • testing exercise as a countermeasure
  • providing sufficient knowledge to identify drug targets and to design novel therapeutic interventions in preclinical animal models.

Our laboratory uses human, rodent and fly muscle samples, and techniques ranging from single-molecule biophysics to muscle cell physiology and from X-ray diffraction to high-resolution confocal/super-resolution microscopy
