Alastair Khodabukus

I am originally from England and completed my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University of Dundee in Scotland. I completed a two year postdoc at UC Davis in 2013 where I focused on factors affecting engineered muscle phenotype under the supervision of Dr. Keith Baar.

I joined the Bursac lab in April 2015.

Outside the lab I enjoy sport, hiking and traveling.

Research Interests

I work on developing more physiologically relevant tissue engineered skeletal muscle to study both healthy and diseased muscle physiology in human and rat cells.
