A report from the Texas Medical Center on research conducted by UTMB’s Stanley Watowich and Doug Paddon-Jones to minimize muscle loss as people get older. Watowich is developing a new drug, RT-001, that would allow a person’s muscles to act younger even as they age. Paddon-Jones and his team have been conducting studies that examine the loss of muscle from inactivity and sarcopenia, which is age-related muscle degeneration.
