My name is Luke Whitcomb - I’m a second year Masters student at Colorado State University. My research focuses on the impact of muscle proteolysis on mitochondrial function (heart, liver, skeletal muscle) in hypoxic environments. My undergraduate background is in bio-energetics, exercise physiology and nutrient metabolism. I currently work for the One Health Institute at CSU.
