- Project title: MECHANISMS OF HUMAN SKELETAL MUSCLE REMODELING IN RESPONSE TO DIFFERENT LOADING PARADIGMS.
- Supervisory Team: Prof. Marco Narici (Director of Studies), Prof. Martin Fluck, Dr Neil Reeves, Dr Philip Atherton (External Adviser - University of Nottingham)
- Martino joined the Institute for Biomedical Research into Human Movement and Health in September 2008 and in July 2010 he successfully completed a MSc by research in Muscle Physiology under the supervision of Professor Marco Narici. Martino is currently an MPhil/PhD student in Muscle Physiology from September 2010. In May 2012 Martino started a collaboration with University of Nottingham at the Derby Royal Hospital, School of Graduate Entry Medicine and Health, department of Clinical Physiology, under the supervision of Professor Marco Narici, Dr Philip Atherton, and Dr Kenneth Smith
