MitoEAGLE Feedback

We mostly work with cultured human skeletal muscle cells, from different donor groups such as lean, obese, type 2 diabetics, as well as muscle cells from athletes. We are interested in collaboration with our cells and measurements on energy metabolism and mitochondral function. - Arild Rustan (2016).
