Citations from Faculty of 1000:

Amara et al. find that mitochondria in highly oxidative muscles in adult human subjects are more uncoupled (lower ratio of ATP produced to oxygen consumed) than less oxidative muscles.

Recent TCMI Grants

A new TCMI project, entitled "New MR Spectroscopy Approaches for Studying Neurodegeneration at 3T" (Project Leader - Kevin Conley), a component of a larger ARRA RC4 grant application, has just received an outstanding impact score of 15 and a 1st percentile rank from the NIH review committee and is very likely to be funded by Fall 2010. For more information, click here.

A TCMI grant application, entitled "Mitochondrial-targeted antioxidants, aging and AZT in skeletal muscle dysfunction" (Project Leaders - Marcinek and Voss), a component of a larger program project, has just received an excellent score in the 1st percentile from the NIH review committee and is very likely to be funded by Fall 2010.

Two recent TCMI grant applications were awarded in the Fall of 2009 by the National Institutes of Aging at NIH. Both projects were Grand Opportunity (GO) grants awarded under the National Institutes' American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding program. For more information, click here.
