Research Interests
Dr. Reid is an established investigator whose research addresses the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie muscle weakness and fatigue. His research team was the first to demonstrate that skeletal muscle produces reactive oxygen species, the first to identify nitric oxide as an endogenous modulator of muscle contraction, and the first to demonstrate that oxidative stress plays a causal role in human muscle fatigue.
