Area(s) of Expertise

Cellular bioenergetics and signaling; causes and consequences of metabolic dysfunction during aging

Research Interests

Cellular energy status is a critical checkpoint for the health and maintenance of tissues. The Crane lab studies age-associated muscle wasting (sarcopenia) as well as mitotic cell aging in the context of energy metabolism using transgenic and knockout mice. The overall goal of the lab is to develop therapies that mitigate chronological aging and promote function and independence in our aging population.
