Integrative Biology Core

The Integrative Biology Core (IBC), in collaboration with other OAIC Cores, utilizes translational research to determine whether specific molecular, physiological, and histological mechanisms contribute to age-related increases in total and “ectopic” (abnormally located) fat, thereby resulting in loss of muscle mass and strength and subsequent decline in physical function, and that therapeutic modification of these factors can slow progression to disability.
