Associate Professor Julien Ochala, a former BSRA board member, joined the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen in May 2020, to follow his research career. This year, one of the Carlsberg Foundation Young Researcher Fellowships (approx. DKK 5 million) has been awarded to Julien, to fund his research over the next three years. The focus of Julien’s project is on the protein Myosin-binding protein C (MyBP-C) and how it works and influences muscle contraction and relaxation. The studies will provide important basic muscle biology insights and give valuable information for the development of targeted therapies for cardiac and skeletal muscle diseases associated with mutations in MyBP-C. Julien has recently advertised a post-doctoral position (https://employment.ku.dk/faculty/?show=153161) associated with his research programme, which may be of interest to some of our BSRA members.
