Current Research Projects

  • A morphologic and T2 mapping score of the anterior cruciate ligament: Developing an outcome score for the evaluation of ACL reconstructions
  • Effects of a subchronic ketogenic diet on skeletal muscle anabolic and catabolic signaling and adipose tissue signaling
  • Effects of aging and nutrition on systemic stem cell content and physiological systems
  • Effects of chronic testosterone and trenbolone enanthate on mature myostatin protein expression, skeletal muscle hypertrophy and satellite cell number
  • Effects of chronic testosterone and trenbolone treatment on markers of skeletal muscle ribosome biogenesis
  • Examining brain changes associated with a 30-day diet intervention (Whole30 Diet)
  • Neurophysiological effects of whole coffee fruit concentrate in older adults with mild cognitive impairment: a fMRI investigation
