Présentation

The main goal of Mylène Aubertin-Leheudre research program is to better understand how muscle function could be improved and maintained in late adulthood. To this aim, his empirical work is concerned with changes in physical functioning that occur in normal aging, specifically those that affect muscle mass (sarcopenia), muscle strenght (dynapenia), muscle quality, frailty and with identifying the determinant factors of muscle function in late adulthood (e.g., lifestyle, physical condition, nutrition (e.g proteins, citrulline), sexual hormones, inflammatory factors, muscle adipose tissue etc..). The major line of her research investigates the effects of physical training and nutritional interventions on muscle function in frail and non-frail older adults.
