About Us

The Integrative Muscle Physiology Laboratory (Chung Muscle Lab) is a research group in the Department of Physiology at the Wayne State University School of Medicine directed by Charles S Chung PhD.

Our Lab seeks to improve our understanding of striated  (heart and skeletal) muscle function.  We do so by integrating physiologic information from proteins up to the whole body.

Our Lab currently focuses our research on understanding heart structure and function in order to improve diagnosis and/or treatment of clinical problems like heart failure.
