Successful ageing for everyone!

I believe that succesful ageing revolves around physical fitness, with a key role for muscle quality. I use this website to store my work in one place, so the whole world can read the results of my scientific research. Enjoy!

About Pol Grootswagers

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. There, I devote my time to the quest of finding ways to – for once and forever – stop the annoying losses in muscle mass and functionality during ageing. The process of losing muscle mass during ageing is so normal to us, that we might fall in the trap of taking it as a given. I am convinced that there is a way to prevent ageing-related losses in muscle mass and functionality to a large extent.
