In this week’s episode, we talk to researcher and professor Keith Baar, Ph.D., about:
- Tendon and Ligament Injuries
- How to support and maintain healthy tendons and ligaments
- What to do if you have an injured tendon/ligament.
- Collagen use – does it work?
Pro tip – watch this on the Nutritional Revolution YouTube channel!
Keith is the head of the Functional Molecular Biology Laboratory in the Department of Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior at the University of California, Davis. He is a molecular exercise physiologist and is leading a team of researchers attempting to develop ways to improve muscle, tendon, and ligament function.
The goal of his laboratory is to understand the molecular determinants of musculoskeletal development and the role of exercise and nutrition in improving health and performance. To achieve this goal, he and his team work on muscle, tendon, and ligaments from 2- and 3-dimensional tissue culture, in vivo wild type and genetically modified animals, and humans.
His study interests include the interplay between nutrition and exercise and the mechanistic target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) in the maintenance of muscle mass; the role of a ketogenic diet in improving age-related declines in muscle and brain function; and the role of different types of loading on the development and mechanics of ligaments.
