Biography

Reader in Neuromuscular Physiology
Dr Rob Erskine is Programme Leader for the MSc in Strength and Conditioning programme (https://www.ljmu.ac.uk/study/courses/postgraduates/strength-and-conditioning). Rob's research interests are focussed on the (mal)adaptation of skeletal muscle and tendon to exercise and disuse, and how genetic variation and nutrition can influence these adaptations.
