Congratulations to CTMR Team Core D for their JGP May cover showing “A detailed computational model of striated muscle elucidates how mutations and drugs may alter twitch timing. The spatially explicit model simulates myosin motors connected within a compliant, contractile lattice, complete with thin filament regulation and varying mutation penetrance. The model yields data used to train classifiers. Image © Asencio et al., 2023. See https://doi.org/10.1085/jgp.202213291.”
Momentum in Muscle Research
We are excited to announce that Ruwanthi (Ru) Gunawardane, Ph.D. is joining CTMR as a member of our External Advisory Board. Ru was recently named Executive Director of the Allen Institute for Cell Science in 2020 after spending five years at Amgen, where she worked on assay development for multiple drug targets spanning oncology, inflammation,…
A huge congratulations to 2020 CTMR pilot grant recipient Farid Moussavi-Harami, MD, who recently received a Notice of Award for his first NIH R01 grant! An Assistant Professor with the UW Medicine’s Division of Cardiology, Dr. Moussavi Harami’s CTMR pilot grant study focused on the genetic mutations, such as dilated cardiomyopathy, impacted contractile force in…
