Discoveries in the Making: Mimicking Exercise State As an Aging Disease Therapy

This is a past event.

What if you could share cutting-edge research from tomorrow’s leading scientists with the people who pay for it, participate in it and who will one day benefit from its potential life-saving results? 

That is what Discoveries in the Making is all about – putting UAB graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in front of the community to share the exciting things they have found through their research.

May's virtual Discoveries in the Making features:

“Mimicking Exercise State As an Aging Disease Therapy”
Presented by Kristen Coutinho

Exercise improves health and has been shown to have anti-aging benefits, such as stronger muscles and healthier hearts. Recent science has shown that exercise can stimulate neuron growth in the parts of the brain associated with learning and memory. These long-term impacts of exercise can benefit us as we age. The challenge is that when we age, it becomes tougher to even carry out day to day activities. Kristen's work is to help discover a way to provide aging, less mobile people the benefits of exercise without their need to carry out actual exercise.
