Better Living Through Research
The Redox Biology & Cell Signaling Laboratory (RBCSL) is dedicated to investigating the role of pro-oxidants in normal skeletal muscle function as well as skeletal muscle dysfunction with physical inactivity and disease. Pro-oxidants such as free radicals (e.g., nitric oxide, superoxide) and other reactive species (e.g., hydrogen peroxide, lipid peroxides) are produced inside the body as a function of metabolism, and contribute to many healthy functions including growth, killing invading bacteria, and control of blood flow.
The Redox Biology & Cell Signaling Laboratory has consistently published its findings in journals of high quality and impact including the American Journal of Physiology, Journal of Applied Physiology, and Free Radical Biology & Medicine. In addition, our students have won numerous awards and grants at the national, state, and local levels.
