Professor Killian receives the prestigious NSF CAREER Award

In this CAREER project, Professor Killian will use an in vivo optogenetic platform to measure structural, mechanical, and molecular changes induced by remodeling and damage of the tendon attachment that are driven by frequency-, magnitude-, and duration-dependent changes in muscle loading, both during postnatal growth and in the mature and aging attachment.

This Award will fund a graduate student at Michigan Medicine for five years and support community engagement in the "Science of Movement" with local K-12 teachers.
