Sunita Mathur, PhD
Dr. Mathur's research is aimed at improving the health of skeletal muscle in people suffering from profound muscle atrophy and weakness in order to help them regain function and independence so they can return to participating in the activities they enjoy. She uses a combination of non-invasive techniques to examine muscle structure and function including muscle force measurements, exercise testing, bioelectrical impedance analysis, magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy (MRI/MRS), muscle ultrasound and computed tomography (CT).

Research is conducted across multiple patient populations including people with advanced lung disease, chronic kidney disease, solid organ transplantation and critical illness.
