Friday, March 24, 2017
12:00pm – 1:00pm
Low Learning Center
Speaker: Elisabet Borsheim, Ph.D., Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences
Topic: "Muscle protein synthesis and breakdown; regulation by nutrients and exercise"
Dr. Borsheim will discuss how muscle plays an essential role as the primary reservoir for amino acids to maintain needs in vital organs during catabolic periods, including between meals and in response to injuries. Intake of amino acids, specifically essential amino acids, stimulates muscle protein synthesis, and improves the net balance between synthesis and breakdown, specifically during aging and with pediatric burn injuries.
