“Skeletal Muscle Epigenetics with Exercise and Aging”


Kevin Murach, Assistant Professor the University of Arkansas, USA

Skeletal muscle undergoes a variety of deleterious changes throughout the aging process that ultimately results in reduced muscle mass and function. Pre-clinical murine models are a powerful tool for uncovering the mechanisms that drive age-related muscle dysfunction, and exercise is the most effective therapy for improving muscle health. The goal of this lecture is to introduce a translatable model of exercise for aged mice, then discuss how this model can be used to inform our understanding of how exercise can benefit aged muscle, with a specific focus on epigenetics.
