Dr. Clanton’s research is largely focused on basic and applied skeletal and cardiac muscle biology, and the role of reactive oxygen species in normal function. Secondly, his laboratory is studying the origins of heat stroke and other disorders related to hyperthermia, and developing new fluorescent imaging and spectroscopy technologies for studying physiology in intact tissues and even in humans.
