Saving Muscle Capital for an Independent Life

The progressive loss of muscle mass in old age (sarcopenia) is the result of an imbalance between the production and deterioration of proteins within our muscles. This often in turn results in the loss of independence, making it a major health concern for our increasingly aging societies. Dr. Anne-Sophie Nicot is investigating the involvement of molecular players in muscle loss to better assess their impact on sarcopenia, in an effort to support new preventive and curative strategies.
