The Laboratory for Muscle Plasticity

Skeletal muscle functioning is essential for bodily actions and interactions. A number of affections such as injury, disease or the natural course of biological aging, reduce physical performance by provoking a loss in muscle mass (Fig. 1). This phenomenon (called atrophy) has important socio-economic repercussions as a considerable portion...
