I study cellular and molecular mechanisms for skeletal muscle growth (hypertrophy). In my PhD-project i found the importance of mechanical stimuli (load) in skeletal muscle hypertrophy by using a rat model for strength training. I also studied the importance of and mechanisms behind muscle memory (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muscle_memory_(strength_training)) by using a mouse model for strength training.
In my work as a postdoc at UiO I am continuing the work of finding the underlying mechanisms of how mechanical stimuli can lead to hypertrophy. I am also involved in a collaboration where we are studying whether muscle memory also takes place in humans.
