Description

Jatin Burniston: Lecture title - "How exercising makes your muscles better, faster, stronger"

There is an intimate relationship between muscle and exercise: without muscle we could not exercise - and - without exercise our muscles deteriorate and become dysfunctional. Muscles are exceptionally malleable and can change in structure, size and function in response to everyday aspects of our lifestyle such as our level of general activity or exercise habits. A long history of vibrant research has sought to understand how these changes occur and how exercise can be used to improve muscle to benefit athletic performance or to slow the onset of ageing and prevent disease. Nevertheless, many questions remain to be answered and technological developments continue to add new tools and new potential for deeper insight to the inner workings of our muscles. I have been fortunate to contribute to an evolution of this research field and for the past decade or more I have been amongst the pioneers of a new research tool that enables us to measure the many thousands of different proteins that make up muscle. Proteins are the workhorses within muscle that enable it to function but until recently it was very difficult to measure large numbers of proteins in a single experiment. This impeded our ability to understand the intricate detail of how muscle becomes better, faster and stronger in response to exercise. During my lecture I will give a flavour of what this new research tool has to offer and I will share the story of my less than usual path to professorship. I will also take this welcome opportunity to pay thanks and express my most sincere gratitude to the many people that have helped me on my way.

Drinks reception will follow the lecture.
