Welcome to the Department of Aerospace Physiology!

Department of Aerospace Physiology was established in 1960 and now it is an important part of national key disciplines of Aerospace medicine in China. Department of Aerospace Physiology discovers and promotes knowledge of how the animal cardiovascular functions adaptation to microgravity and their countermeasures through an understanding of cells, organs, and systems. Through the combined efforts of faculty, students, and staff, we strive to maintain a scientific community that fosters excellent undergraduates, masters and Ph.Ds in teaching and research.

Research Interests

Striated muscle contractility and molecular regulation

Research Description

Anti-gravity skeletal muscles change phenotype in response to unloading and cardiac performance is reduced in long-term space flight. Using the tail-suspended rat model to simulate the weightlessness on the ground, we investigated the regulation of myofilament protein isoforms in correlation to contractility in skeletal and cardiac muscles.

Current Projects

1.Activated calpains may mediate sarcomere lesions of atrophic skeletal muscle during recovery and its countermeasurements(NSFC30770805)

2.Stress PKCs may induce transition from compensative hypertrophy of myocardium to heart failure(NSFC30700264)

3.Contraction and insulin may merge their down-stream signaling  pathway to regulate glucose uptake of skeletal muscle(NSFC30500252)
