Project title: CELLULAR AND MOLECULAR BASES FOR MUSCLE AGEING

Project number: PN II 42-133

Acronym: SARCO

Abstract:

Sarcopenia has become a serious problem for older people. Skeletal muscle represents approximately 40% of body weight and besides its essential role in motion, it also plays a role in maintaining body heat and regulating the metabolism. Muscular pathology is in our country is little approached in our country, even less so when it comes to the molecular causes of sarcopenia. The project goal is to expand the knowledge regarding muscle ageing, with a view to improve the quality of life, through molecular and cellular studies.
