Our lab studies the physiologic mechanisms that lead to change in physical or cognitive function for patients with cancer. In particular, we are currently focused on cachexia syndrome, a muscle wasting disorder that affects a majority of patients with cancer, along with many other chronic diseases. We use both pre-clinical models and clinical databases to investigate the key molecular factors that control physical recovery from cachexia.
