Holly Van Remmen and Tim Griffin received VA funding to focus on a pair of diseases prevalent in aging veterans.
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 grant will help OMRF recruit a pair of new scientists to its aging research program.
