2020 Center for Translational Muscle Research

How can we decipher human movement?

CTMR: White text on purple background, UW Center for Translational Muscle ResearchOur skeletal muscles have amazing structure. They provide elegant and efficient actuation to move and explore our worlds. But how do we understand how muscles produce movement?

Dr. Steele presents at the inaugural research symposium for the University of Washington Center for Translational Muscle Research. Her presentation shares examples for how we can use musculoskeletal simulation as a tool to connect muscle biology, dynamics, and mobility.

Elijah Kuska named TL1 scholar, 2020 Cohort

Elijah in a teal hockey jersey and black rectangular glasses smiles in front of a bright orange sunset.

We are very proud to announce that Elijah Kuska is part of a cohort of new trainees in the Institute of Translational Health Sciences (ITHS) TL1 Translational Research Training Program. This is a one-year mentored research training program in translational science in a cross-disciplinary community with training, career development, and team science skills.

Project Title: “Analyzing the complex interaction between impaired neuromuscular and musculoskeletal system to determine if gait abnormalities of children with cerebral palsy are advantageous”. Congratulations Elijah!
