Recent research efforts have focused on: 1) how cellular- and molecular-level inflammatory processes modulate the functional recovery following traumatic and exercise/work-induced musculoskeletal injuries, 2) how aging and loss of estrogen in females modulate muscle strength and recovery from traumatic muscle injury, and 3) how adjacent tissues (i.e., muscle and bone) affect the other’s recovery from traumatic wounds mimicking those occurring on the battlefield. These studies have involved both human and rodent models, including in vitro and in vivo muscle models.
