Muscle Metabolism Study

The purpose of the proposed research is to characterize age-related metabolic dysfunction in human female skeletal muscle. This study will allow us to not only further understand the potential causes underlying observed changes in aging female skeletal muscle metabolism, but it will also provide evidence to develop better therapies to improve the overall quality of life for older women.
