- To begin to understand the close association between muscle and bone during development and growth and how nutrition and physical activity affect general health.
- To dissect the association between sarcopenia and osteoporosis and determine what role aging plays in these processes.
- To identify molecular and cellular mechanisms responsible for the close association between muscle and bone in both health and disease and with aging.
- To define defective mechanotransduction in both muscle and bone and identify means to treat musculoskeletal disease.
- To identify means to prevent, treat, or reverse muscle and bone loss.
- To determine if muscle communicates with bone independent of mechanical loading.
- Based on the proceedings of the meeting, assess the feasibility of establishing a combined research field that integrates muscle and bone physiology in order to generate a better understanding of how these two tissues integrate and crosstalk in both health and disease
