Striated muscle inflammation
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.

September 2022: Four undergraduates join the Tobin lab for their thesis projects. Welcome Alex, Abbey, Sabastian and Vivien!
August 2022: New paper - The importance of biological sex in cardiac cachexia. Published in AJP - Heart and circulatory physiology
March 2022: Thank-you to the Trent University Office of Research and Innovation for funding our project on Inflammatory Memory in Muscle Stem Cells with a Research and Development Grant!

Dr. Tobin joins the Department of Biology at Trent University
Students interested in joining the lab should send an email of interest including a resume and unofficial transcript.
If you are interested in doing a thesis project with me for the 2023-2024 academic year, interviews will be held in February 2023.
