Descriptor of Research
Dr. Sinacore’s research focuses on metabolic, musculoskeletal impairments and physical performance adaptations resulting from multi-component exercise training in chronic diseases including obesity, diabetes, and peripheral neuropathy. His goal is to define the cellular basis for poor muscle performance and muscle quality in individuals with metabolic disease and to understand and employ the most effective, evidence-based, therapeutic interventions that remediate metabolic and musculoskeletal impairments and their associated functional decline in adults with diabetes and peripheral neuropathy.
