Title: "Molecular mediators of the therapeutic effects of physical exercise "
Research in our laboratory is aimed at understanding the molecular mechanisms that mediate skeletal muscle adaptations to diverse challenges and their local and systemic consequences. We are particularly interested in understanding how trained or sedentary skeletal muscle can crosstalk with other organs, and how it can affect individual health and disease. By defining these molecular pathways, we are learning valuable lessons that we are starting to translate into future disease therapies.
