Gary Diffee runs the Diffee Lab. The research in the Diffee laboratory is focused on understanding the regulation of contraction in muscle cells. Regulation of the contractile force and speed is a complex process that involves the concerted effort of numerous cellular components. These regulatory processes are key in the modulation of contractile performance and are often subject to alteration by the muscle cell as it adapts during development, to changes in functional demand (such as with chronic exercise), or to aging or disease processes.
