  • Creatine in seniors

    Sarcopenia is associated with reduced bone mass and bone strength and may be a contributing factor for the increased risks of falls and fractures often observed in aging adults. It is well established that resistance training is an effective lifestyle intervention for improving aging muscle mass, strength and bone accretion. Accumulating evidence indicates that creatine […]

  • NASA is a busy place

    I’m reading NASA’s launch schedules and it is fascinating! Artemis I will be the first integrated test of NASA’s deep space exploration systems: the Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and the ground systems at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The first in a series of increasingly complex missions, Artemis I will […]

  • What was there before the big bang?

    The James Webb Space Telescope came out with images lately. Rob and I were fascinated at the one image of, mind-blowingly, 13 billion years ago. Light from these galaxies took billions of years to reach us. We are looking back in time to within a billion years after the big bang when viewing the youngest […]

    Nephrotic syndrome Septic emboli Cerebral abscess Ecthyma Omphalopagus twins Cloacal exstrophy of urinary bladder Osgood-Schlatter’s Disease Hereditary alpha-tryptasemia Bleeding diasthesis

  • Rejuvenation of naturally aged tissues

    The expression of the pluripotency factors OCT4, SOX2, KLF4, and MYC (OSKM) can convert somatic differentiated cells into pluripotent stem cells in a process known as reprogramming. Notably, partial and reversible reprogramming does not change cell identity but can reverse markers of aging in cells, improve the capacity of aged mice to repair tissue injuries, […]

  • Things I’ve looked up recently

    Kienböck Disease Feasibility of high intensity training in asthma High intensity interval training increases the clinical control, aerobic fitness and decreases dyspnea in severe asthmatics What is spinning Vascularized medial femoral trochlea osteochondral flap reconstruction of advanced Kienböck disease

  • Happy Holidays

    Sorry for the long gaps in posting here. I’ve had a birthday, then Thanksgiving, and was preparing for the holidays (2 days left!). Also, work seems to be ramping up a little bit due to everyone doing things at the very last minute. Here are a few things I looked up this week: The pharmacokinetics […]

  • OMG, Omicron

    Research is what I’m doing when I don’t know what I’m doing. Wernher von Braun For the past year and a half, if anyone wanted, they could look to see how science is being done just by looking up research on the SARS-CoV-2 virus. If pandemics were a reality show… Now season 3 is upon […]
