NORC Initiative to Advance the Careers of Researchers from Groups Underrepresented in Academia

August 24, 2020

The Nutrition Obesity Research Centers (NORCs), supported by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), host an initiative to identify the barriers and challenges to success of scientists from URiA groups and to identify actionable strategies to overcome these challenges. The goal is to provide specific recommendations to improve equity and inclusion for the NORCs, NORC-associated institutional leadership, and scientific societies such as the American Society for Nutrition (ASN) and The Obesity Society (TOS). Each event is from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. (Central). And all sessions will be recorded and widely distributed through NORCs, NIDDK, … Read More »

The muscle anabolic effect of protein ingestion during a hyperinsulinaemic euglycaemic clamp in middle‐aged women is not caused by leucine alone

October 18, 2019

Abstract It has been suggested that leucine is primarily responsible for the increase in muscle protein synthesis (MPS) after protein ingestion because leucine uniquely activates the mTOR‐p70S6K signalling cascade. We tested this hypothesis by measuring muscle p‐mTORSer2448, p‐p70S6KThr389 and p‐eIF2αSer51, as well as protein turnover (by stable isotope labelled amino acid tracer infusion in conjunction with leg arteriovenous blood and muscle tissue sampling), in 28 women who consumed either 0.45 g protein kg−1 fat‐free mass (containing 0.0513 g leucine kg−1 fat‐free mass) or a control drink (n = 14) or 0.0513 g leucine kg−1 fat‐free mass or a control drink (n = 14) during a hyperinsulinaemic‐euglycaemic clamp procedure … Read More »
