Donovan Lott

Donovan’s main research interest is exploring the potential of exercise and rehabilitation programs to enhance skeletal muscle and motor function in patients with neuromuscular disease. This current focus involves examining how the amount of physical activity relates to muscle damage and disease progression in children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Research methods employed to investigate this area include magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy, accelerometry for quantifying activity, strength assessments, and evaluations of functional mobility. A second line of research is to determine the effectiveness of pre-rehabilitation programs in the prevention of muscle injury in healthy people and injured individuals with muscle wasting following injury.
