Personal profile

Research interests

My Current research focuses on understanding how changes at the molecular and cellular level in skeletal muscle affect muscle structure and function. And, in turn, how pathological changes in muscle loading and use affect cellular processes. I currently have two main research projects, one looking at the progressive changes to the rotator cuff following a tear and another investigating the drivers and consequences of the development of intramuscular (extra-fibrillar) fat.


The Meyer lab makes mentorship a priority and takes seriously the responsibility of guiding lab members through the phase of their training they spend with us.  This requires a unique approach for each individual.  We value each lab member's background and perspective and the unique contributions they make to lab science and lab culture.  We believe that diversity strengthens our science and our community and welcome everyone with a love of muscle and desire to work hard.
