  • A genetic chaperone for healthy aging?

    Researchers at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) have identified an epigenetic mechanism that appears to strongly influence healthy aging. It’s a protein that controls muscle integrity, lifespan and levels of an essential sugar. How does one protein have that much power? Animals l more

  • A golden ticket to faster muscle recovery

    Anyone who has ever torn or injured a muscle knows that swelling, redness, and pain soon follow the injury: classic signs of inflammation. Inflammation is the body’s natural response to promote healing, but prolonged, excess inflammation in the muscles can contribute to the progression of chronic di more

  • New technique could bring earlier diagnoses for muscular dystrophy, ALS and similar disorders
