Skeletal Muscle Physiology

Special Interest

The Special Interest Group (SIG) is devoted to skeletal muscle. The purpose of the skeletal muscle SIG is to boost scientific interactions between researchers in the skeletal muscle community in Scandinavia and Europe.

Objectives and Vision

This SIG is open and inclusive of many scientific aspects and type of studies of muscle function and dysfunction. Clinical and preclinical studies and results from in vivo, ex vivo and in vitro experiments are all greeted to be shared during our meetings. Aspects and topics include, but not restricted to, novel features of muscles capacity to generate fore and endurance, insight into how positive and negative stressors are encoded, remembered, and affects muscle function, as well as comprehending the details of mitochondria’s power to provide muscle with energy. We are looking forward to seeing you at our coming events.

Position in Nordic Physiology

The aspiration of the skeletal muscle SIG is to arrange focused symposiums to share recent findings about muscle function and dysfunction in conjunction with SPS annual meetings. Moreover, to create network opportunities between members, and to open doors for exchange of faculty members, postdocs, and students.
