Scientific scope/ competences:
Study of the alterations of the membrane excitability and contractile capacity of skeletal muscles and heart related to the triggering of the polyneuromyopathy observed in intensive care units. More precisely, the role of several important factors (cytokines, sepsis) is taken into account. The approach particularly involves electrophysiological techniques such as patch-clamp.
Muscle, heart, contraction, membrane excitability, voltage gated sodium channels (NaV), cytokines, Tumor necrosis factor alpha, IL13, electrophysiology, patch-clamp.
