Main purpose: We study the mechanisms of musculo-skeletal growth and decline, and discover nutritional solutions to optimise physical health and mobility across the lifespan.


Key Goals

  • Molecular mechanisms of sarcopenia and nutritional prevention strategies
  • Cellular nutrition in aged muscle through autophagy, stem cells and mitochondria
  • Macronutrient & micronutrients for bone stability, cartilage integrity and muscle maintenance
  • Macronutrients & micronutrients, promoting healthy muscle growth in children
