Dr. Bodine is a Neuromuscular Physiologist whose general field of study is Skeletal Muscle Plasticity. Her primary research interests are in understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate skeletal muscle size under growth and atrophy conditions. Currently her lab is studying the role of mTOR-mediated pathways in the regulation of muscle growth and adaptive hypertrophy in young and aging animals. In addition, her lab is investigating the physiological function and transcriptional regulation of two muscle specific E3 Ubiquitin Ligases: MuRF1 and MAFbx, in both skeletal and cardiac tissues.
