Dr. Sinha was awarded for his project, “PHD2 mediated loss of hypoxia signaling limits skeletal muscle regeneration and exercise response in aging.”
The study evaluates the role of the hypoxia signaling pathway in age-related decline in skeletal muscle regeneration and response to exercise. The goal is to identify drug targets to limit loss of skeletal muscle function in the elderly population.
