Aaron’s goal is to investigate the beneficial effects of exercise on human health at the molecular level. He will use current multi-omics approaches to analyze patient and animal data that are being collected from the MoTrPAC study. This is a $200 million NIH-initiated study, for which the Ashley lab is the data and analysis hub, which focuses on assembling a comprehensive map of the molecular changes that occur in response to movement, and when possible, relate these changes to the benefits of physical activity.
