Cellular & Molecular Metabolism
Our laboratory uses a unique, translational research approach to understand the mechanisms that promote aging and age-related musculoskeletal diseases. We test hypotheses in tissue culture and rodent models and apply our findings to non-human primates and human clinical trials. We are currently interested in understanding how the mTOR signaling pathway is involved in the initiation and treatment of osteoarthritis. Additionally, we are investigating how skeletal muscle mitochondrial metabolism and remodeling are regulated with aging, exercise and medications.
