Skeletal muscle and the immune system are both implicated in many diseases such as ageing/sarcopenia, muscular dystrophy and diabetes. It is well established that the immune system and skeletal muscle cross talk to aid in muscle growth and regeneration, but the mechanisms remain elusive. Exercise immunology is an emerging field of research and Dr Wright is particularly interested in understanding the relationship between the immune system and skeletal muscle. He uses a multitude of techniques ranging from human clinical trials to animal models of disease, to molecular and cell biological techniques to investiagte skeletal muscle and immune health. Some of his current research projects involve clinical exercise trials involving hypoxia (altitude) training to improve muscle growth and immune function, and invesitiagting cytokines (G-CSF) and antoxidant proteins (Selenoprotein S) and their role in maintaining optimal muscle health.
