Building blocks, biomarkers and intervention options for muscle aging
Remaining vital in old age is not only important to individuals, it is also important to society at large. One of the main factors that cause elderly people to lose their independence is decreased muscle function. In this project, the consortium partners plan to investigate which of the building blocks of muscle are responsible for the decline in function with ageing, how this could be detected already at a young age, and how it might be prevented by dietary interventions.
