UC Davis Joins National Effort on Links Between Health and Exercise

December 13, 2016
The National Institutes of Health today (Dec. 13) announced a six-year, $170 million nationwide project to dig deep into the molecular changes that come from physical activity, and how they influence health. Two professors in the University of California, Davis, College of Biological Sciences, Sue Bodine and Keith Baar, are taking part in the effort.
