Evolution of the science has resulted in the evolution of the organization and structure of the Center awarded starting June 1, 2013. The new Center has a much greater emphasis on transcriptional regulation of metabolism with a reduced focus on conditionally essential amino acids. This restructuring supports the utilization of multiple new and unique reagents and resources, including a uniquely designed murine microarray, unique knockout and transgenic murine models highly relevant to our research, selected antibodies directed against specific phosphoserine sites of IRS1/2, the human skeletal muscle transcriptome data, and new computational methodologies and models.

Our newest publications will be listed here as we work to develop or employ several novel methodologies, tool, and technologies to explore the inflammatory-induced changes in skeletal muscle metabolism after burn injury
