Muscle Biology Laboratory
The Muscle Biology Laboratory aims to discover how skeletal muscle glucose metabolism is influenced by exercise, diet, and aging. Our research targets insulin resistance, a primary cause of Type 2 diabetes, and aspires to under-stand how individuals affected by insulin resistance can use exercise and diet to improve their health and well-being. The ultimate goals are to discover exercise and diet strategies that optimize health and to develop alternative strategies that benefit those physically unable to exercise.
