An abstract summary is coming soon!

The Bodine laboratory is interested in identifying the mechanisms responsible for muscle atrophy and determining strategies for preventing atrophy or accelerating recovery following a period of muscle loss. In the quest to understand muscle atrophy, Dr. Bodine has also investigated the mechanisms that regulate adaptive muscle growth, or hypertrophy, in adult animals. Her lab is pursuing research to identify the molecular mediators of the health benefits of exercise.

Targeting Biological Aging: A New Paradigm for 21st Century Medicine

During this webinar, Dr. Matt Kaeberlein will provide an overview of translational geroscience, which he believes will become the paradigm for the practice of medicine in the 21st century. He will also discuss recent work with one such intervention, the drug rapamycin, and its potential to enhance healthspan in companion dogs and people.

Aging and Bone Health

In this webinar, Dr. Joy Wu will review the pathophysiology of bone loss with aging, in particular the imbalance between bone formation by osteoblasts and bone resorption by osteoclasts. She will discuss stem cell sources of osteoblasts, anabolic signaling pathways, and targeting inflammation and senescence.
