Age-related muscle loss, called sarcopenia, happens to all of us as we age and is a major cause of disability and loss of independence in the elderly.
OMRF scientist Holly Van Remmen has been named president-elect of the Society for Redox Biology and Medicine.
OMRF scientist Bumsoo Ahn, Ph.D., has been awarded an Irene Diamond Fund/AFAR Postdoctoral Transition Award in Aging.
An OMRF discovery could potentially open the door for the first drug option to treat age-related muscle weakness and atrophy.
The trio of scientists assumed their new positions at the foundation Nov. 1, bringing the total number of OMRF senior scientists to 49.
The grant will help OMRF recruit a pair of new scientists to its aging research program.
