Project Details

Protein homeostasis (proteostasis) is essential for the regeneration and health of skeletal muscle. The gradual inability of cells and organism to maintain proteostasis as they age has been proposed to contribute to older individuals overall loss of fitness and reduced healthspan. This project will look at whether known markers of proteostasis are associated with the gradual loss of muscle mass and strength as we age in a population of outpatients and inpatients.

Research Opportunities

This research project is available to PhD, Masters by Research, Honours, Master of Biomedical Science students to join as part of their thesis.
