The rapid rise in the prevalence of obesity, diabetes, and physical inactivity has significantly contributed to the increasing global burden of noncommunicable diseases. Skeletal muscle, the largest tissue in the body, possesses remarkable plasticity and represents a key pharmacological target to combat these diseases. Skeletal muscle redox signaling has emerged as a novel regulator of skeletal muscle metabolism but the molecular mechanisms involved are still not well understood. Our research focuses on connecting intracellular redox signaling and skeletal muscle metabolism in the context of metabolic diseases.
