Nicolas Musi, M.D.

Research expertise is in aging, insulin resistance and exercise physiology. Research program in metabolic/endocrine gerontology, is devoted to exploring the effects that aging has on numerous metabolic and cellular processes, and relevant to the patho-genesis of age-related diseases such as diabetes, obesity and sarcopenia. Clinical interests include pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of diabetes in the elderly, molecular mechanisms underlying sarcopenia of aging and effects of exercise on glucose and lipid metabolism at the whole-body and cellular levels.
