Muscle Physiology Lab
In the Muscle Physiology Lab, we strive to understand the effects of age, gender, and physical activity on human skeletal muscle function. We use a combination of techniques to study various aspects of muscle physiology and energetics. We are currently seeking volunteers for several research projects. You may be eligible if you:
- are 25-40 or 65-80 years old
- do not smoke
- do not participate in a structured exercise program
Information about the way your muscle functions, as well as some monetary compensation are provided to volunteers who complete the study!
