An exciting PhD project to study the intricate muscle membrane remodelling associated with exercise in elderly people has been advertised. This examines nano/micrometre scale changes in the membrane tubular systems (see picture from our recent paper – Cully et al. (2017) Nature Communications) in skeletal muscle. It is an opportunity to work with our long term skeletal muscle collaborators in Brisbane, clinical collaborators in sunny Devon and autophagy experts in Newcastle with a structured programme to work with industrial partner Badrilla Ltd developing antibody and peptide probes.
