SEMINAR: Muscle Mechanics and Energetics in Locomotion: From Basic Research to Human Health

Today's date is Thursday, February 25, 2021
Muscle Mechanics and Energetics in Locomotion: From Basic Research to Human Health : School of Anatomy, Physiology & Human Biology Seminar Series Other events...
The Seminar: Dr Rubenson will discuss his work aimed at understanding the relationships between in vivo muscle function, locomotor mechanics and it associated metabolic energy cost. Dr Rubenson will discuss projects adopting experimental and modeling approaches in both humans and animal systems. His projects span basic research questions requiring direct muscle mechanics and energetics measurements (e.g. muscle strain, force, muscle blood flow) as well as clinical research questions, in particular into muscle mechanics and energetics in ageing and chronic heart failure.

The Speaker: Dr Jonas Rubenson is an Assistant Professor in the Biomechanics Group within the School of Sport Science, Exercise & Health at UWA. His expertise lies in study of musculoskeletal mechanics, in particular in vivo muscle function during movement and the relationship between muscle function and locomotor energetics. Dr Rubenson received his PhD from the University of Western Australia, where he studied the role of mechanical energetics as a determinant of the energy cost of bipedal running. Subsequent post-doctoral positions at Northeastern University (Boston, MA) and Stanford University (Stanford, CA) saw Dr Rubenson gain expertise in both mechanical and energetic measurements of skeletal muscle in animal models (e.g. sonomicrometery and blood flow measurements) as well as experimental measurement and musculoskeletal modelling of muscle function in humans.
