Kristy Swiderski

I completed my Ph.D. at WEHI in 2007, focussing on the role of the Suppressor of cytokine signaling 3 (SOCS3) protein in murine embryonic stem cells (mESCs). In 2008 I began post-doctoral studies at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA with Professor Jeffrey Chamberlain to focus my career research on skeletal muscle disease. I joined the Basic and Clinical Myology laboratory in the Department of Physiology in 2011, where I am continuing to pursue my career interest in skeletal muscle protein function as a member of the Centre for Muscle Research in the newly formed Department of Anatomy and Physiology. My current research interests revolve around how post-translational modification affects the function of key striated muscle proteins and how subsequent downstream signalling modulates skeletal muscle mass/health.
