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.
