Earlier this month, the Hawke Lab flew down to Gainesville, FL to attend the University of Florida Myology Institute’s Advances in Skeletal Muscle Biology in Health and Disease Conference (March 6-8).
The dynamic group of local and international presenters provided newfound perspectives on the incredible plasticity of skeletal muscle, with respect to novel signalling pathways, disease models and treatment modalities.
The Hawke Lab would like to congratulate current PhD students, Athan Dial and Cynthia Monaco, on their quick yet intellectual and well-versed ‘data blitz’ presentations.
As well as our friend and collaborator Dr. Christopher Perry at York University, for his insightful talk on “Targeting mitochondrial bioenergetics to treat muscle weakness in Duchenne muscular dystrophy”.
Thank-you to the efforts of the presenters and organizers alike, for putting on this year’s conference. It was the perfect mix of people, science, and good weather!
