On July 14th the Journal of Physiology published new research from 2012 AFAR Research Grant recipient Micah Drummond, PhD. 

Dr. Drummond’s research examined the age-related differences caused by periods of bed rest. His team found that, unlike younger adults, older adults experience decreased in leg lean muscle mass and strength as a result of bed rest.  However, the research also shows that most of the loss can be recovered through the employment of rehabilitation techniques.

The abstract for this article can be read here.

Micah Drummond, PhD, is an Assistant Professor at the University of Utah.
