Accelerating and expanding translational muscle research
The UW Center for Translational Muscle Research (CTMR) was funded by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) to provide a unifying organization for muscle research in the heart of Seattle’s biomedical research community. The goal of the Center is to facilitate new collaborations, recruit new investigators, bring clinicians and researchers together, and provide access to state-of-the-art approaches in multi-scale biomechanics, metabolism, and quantitative-computational analysis, to accelerate translational research efforts at the UW.
In May, CTMR Investigators participated in the 2022 Myofilament research conference “Myofilament Form and Function: Determinants of Sarcomeric Contractility”…

Mechanics & Devices Core
The Mechanics and Devices Core provides state-of-the-art measurements of muscle biomechanics at multiple levels of integration, and develops new assays for maturation and assessment of early stage muscle.
The Metabolism Core provides tools for in-depth measures and analysis of metabolomics, energetics, cell respiration and mitochondrial function.
Quantitative Analysis Core
The Quantitative Analysis Core provides computational and statistical tools for understanding disease, suggesting new
therapeutic targets, and understanding mechanisms.
