Teresa Davis Lab

About the Lab

Members of the Teresa Davis Lab.

Dr. Davis' research program focuses on identifying the mechanism by which nutrients, hormones, and growth factors regulate protein deposition in skeletal muscle during early postnatal life. The Davis Lab is a part of the Children's Nutrition Research Center

Studies performed in the Davis laboratory are unique in that they bring basic research on the molecular mechanisms by which nutrients, hormones, and growth factors regulate protein synthesis closer to the translational level of improving the bedside nutritional support of low birth weight infants and developing new strategies to improve animal agriculture.
