Emma completed her undergraduate degree in honours biomedical sciences at the University of Waterloo and joined our lab as a masters student in the fall of 2015. Her MSc thesis focused on the role of calcium handling and phospholamban in duchennes muscular dystrophy. Emma completed her masters in 2017 and began her Phd in the Tupling lab in 2018.
Eric completed his undergraduate, MSc and PhD at the University of Waterloo in Kinesiology. He completed his Msc and PhD under the supervision of Professor Howie Green. His research focus was on the role of calcium handling in muscle myopathies, obesity and muscle regeneration. Eric moved on to be a post-doctoral fellow and lab manager for our lab up until 2017 and now works at the University of McMaster.
Chris' research interests encompass changes in sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ regulation in response to physiological stress, such as exercise. He completed is Masters degree at the University of Waterloo in 2008.
Val’s research focus is on the role of Ca2+ regulation, at the level of the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ pump, on skeletal muscle health and disease.
Dan’s research interests surround the role skeletal muscle plays in contributing to overall metabolic health. Dan completed his undergraduate degree in biology (Hons) at Western University, and an MSc at the University of Waterloo (kinesiology). Dan's Phd in Dr. Tupling's lab addressed how the energy used by the skeletal muscle Ca2+ pump affects energy balance, weight gain and adiposity. After the completion of his PhD, Dan went onto do post-doctoral research at the BC Children's Hospital Research Institute.
Khanh completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Waterloo studying honours kinesiology. Khanh completed his MSc in the Tupling lab in 2015. His MSc thesis focused on oxidative stress and how it alters the function of the sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca2+ ATPase (SERCA) pump.
Frenk Kwon is a graduate of health sciences at the University of Western Ontario and kinesiology at the University of Waterloo. Frenk completed his MSc in 2017 with a focus on the potential protective benefits of high fat feeding in mdx mice.
Catherine completed her BSc (honours) in kinesiology at the University of Waterloo in May 2015 and held a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Undergraduate Student Research Award and a Canadian Institute for Health Research (CIHR) Summer Student Award. Catherine MSc research focused on the role of sarcolipin in duchenne's muscular dystrophy (DMD) and current corticosteroidl DMD treatments. She completed her MSc with Dr. Tupling's lab in 2017 and went on to pursue her PhD at York University.
Riley completed his undergraduate degree in honours kinesiology at the University of Waterloo in 2015 while playing for the men’s varsity hockey team. In 2017, Riley completed his MSc in the Tupling lab focused on ketone supplementation and performance in male athletes.
Bradley started volunteering in our lab in 2014 and has since become an exceptional young researcher. While working in our lab, Bradley received two NSERC - Undergraduate Student Research Awards and a CIHR - Undergradate Summer Studentship Award. As well, Bradley completed a fourth year undergraduate project which focuses on a potential therapeutic strategy for centronuclear myopathy.
