Lab’s Mission and Goal:
The long term goal of The Anthony Lab is to identify dietary components and cellular processes that prevent and treat serious diseases and promote healthspan. We aim to achieve this goal by identifying mechanisms of proteostasis control in organ systems throughout the body. We are especially interested in understanding how altering the supply of amino acids, in total or individually, is sensed and communicated under different metabolic states. We also are interested in metabolic and molecular responses to exercise and the crosstalk between diet, physical activity and biological rhythms.
