Research interests

Dr Wright is interested in characterizing specific molecular factors connecting skeletal muscle growth and metabolism. He is particularly interested in skeletal muscle inflammation and regeneration. He uses a variety of molecular and cell biological techniques to obtain overviews of the molecules and signaling pathways involved in healthy and diseased states of skeletal muscle. Some of his current research projects involve the molecules G-CSF and its receptor, Selenoprotein S (SEPS1).
