Welcome to the website of Dr. Tobin. I am an Assistant Professor of Integrative Biology at Trent University. I am interested in how muscle and immune stem cells develop cellular memory in response to various diseases associated with chronic inflammation, such as aging (inflamm-aging) and chronic heart failure.
