Peterson and Noehren Receive NIH BIRT Grant with Wake Forest University
Congratulations to Charlotte Peterson, PhD who recently received another NIH Building Interdisciplinary Research Team (BIRT) award, this time as a subaward with Wake Forest University. Peterson (Principal Investigator) will collaborate with Brian Noehren, PT, PhD and researchers at Wake Forest on their one-year project, entitled Strength training and arthritis trial, to investigate quadriceps muscle weakness associated with knee osteoarthritis; the team will identify those most at risk for muscle weakness and those who are unlikely to respond to standard exercise regimens. The Wake Forest team will lead the project on recruitment of subjects and muscle biopsies and the Peterson lab will conduct all biopsy analyses. This project uses an interdisciplinary team approach to basic and translational research.
