This collaborative project, awarded with Sarah Greising at the University of Minnesota, investigates rehabilitation approaches to improve the function and quality of the remaining muscle after injury. Research will explore if physical inactivity contributes to long-term dysfunction after volumetric muscle loss injury.

- The impact of volumetric muscle loss injury on persistent motoneuron axotomy
- Early rehabilitation for volumetric muscle loss injury augments endogenous regenerative aspects of muscle strength and oxidative capacity
- PGC-1α overexpression partially rescues impaired oxidative and contractile pathophysiology following volumetric muscle loss injury
