Brock University research headed by Assistant Professor of Kinesiology Val Fajardo has made national headlines.
Fajardo’s research team was selected for a NASA research program whose work includes studying muscle samples from mice that have spent some time on the International Space Station.
The research, which got started in January and will continue in full once the COVID-19 restrictions on research are lifted, got some major attention Tuesday, April 28 when it was picked up online and in print by the Globe and Mail.
The research team also includes Wendy Ward, Brock Kinesiology Professor and Canada Research Chair in Bone and Muscle Development and Assistant Professor of Health Sciences Rebecca MacPherson. PhD student Holt Messner will be leading this work alongside master’s students Kennedy Whitley, Sophie Hamstra, Ryan Baranowski, Jessica Braun and others from the Fajardo, Ward and MacPherson labs.
