Centre for Muscle Research (CMR)

Investigating the mechanisms underlying skeletal muscle wasting and weakness.

Established in 2019, the Centre for Muscle Research is the central hub of muscle biology at the University of Melbourne.

The Centre’s goal is to advance the University’s capacity for basic, clinical and translational research on skeletal muscle, by actively facilitating world-class research and research training on muscle-related diseases and conditions of unmet clinical needs.

Collaborating with multidisciplinary teams and leaders at the local, national, and international level, our mission is to:

• Translate breakthroughs in muscle biology to industries by enhancing sustainability
• Create smart foods to maintain health across the lifespan, and
• Tackle muscle disease and inform healthy ageing strategies for Australians as they transition through life
