Aging & Translational Research in Medicine Lab

The main focus of the muscle metabolism laboratory is to determine effective treatments for muscle loss in several different populations, including cancer and aging. Current studies include how anabolic treatments such as testosterone and/or amino acid supplementation influence muscle metabolism in cancer patients. Additionally, the lab studies blood flow and muscle perfusion as it relates to aging.
