Dr. Ola Adegoke

Skeletal Muscle- Endothelial cell interactions in Cachexia

The influence of dairy consumption on systemic and leukocyte inflammation

Muscle stem cell fates in a mouse model of peripheral artery disease

Amino acids are critical components of our diet, in that they are needed to make the different proteins that perform crucial functions in our bodies. Under some circumstances however, they have been implicated in insulin resistance. In this proposal, Dr. Adegoke will use funds provided by MHRC to examine the link between amino acids and insulin action in skeletal muscle.


Dr. Mazen Hamadeh

Lou Gehrig’s disease is a neuromuscular disease that causes weakness and paralysis of muscle. Dr. Hamadeh is investigating the mechanisms that contribute to muscle dysfunction in this disease model. The award will be used to understand the role of vitamin D in mitigating the severity of the disease by manipulating vitamin D exposure at different levels from deficiency to adequacy to supraphysiological doses.
