VENI-grant for Melissa Hooijmans

Reduced muscle oxidative capacity and decreasing muscle strength are key contributors to loss of mobility with age. Non-invasive, dynamic and functionally relevant outcome measures targeting skeletal muscle oxidative capacity are lacking. With this NWO grant, Melissa Hooijmans will develop non-invasive state-of-the-art MRI, using in-magnet exercise, to assess muscle oxidative capacity in ageing muscle.
