Paddon-Jones Receives $2 million from the National Institute on Aging to Help Adults Return to Full Activity
After being in bed or having an injury like a broken leg, adults can take a long time to get back to their previous level of physical performance. To help solve this problem, Douglas Paddon-Jones, PhD, FACSM has been awarded $2,009,742 from the National Institute on Aging for his project, "Sex-specific determinants of early-phase recovery from skeletal muscle disuse."
Since arriving at UTMB, Dr. David A. Brown said he has been impressed by the caliber of work being done in education and in research, citing the SHP's current NIH funding ranking of 11th nationally and the prevalence of translational research with potential to make a direct impact on patient care.More SHP News
