Premature Aging and Skeletal Muscle Dysfunction in COPD Patients: Development of a Cell Line Model

This study will offer an insight into the pathogenesis of skeletal muscle wasting and dysfunction, an increasing problem in the aging COPD population. This could then be translated into studies that will help us to develop pharmacological and exercise-training interventions and also for interventions targeted at aging mechanisms.
