The aim of our MALICoT study is to improve the knowledge about the connective tissue of the muscles. The connective tissue is important for our daily activities. However, it is widely unknown how the muscle´s connective tissue is accomplishing this.
Therefore, we compare the muscle structure of athletes and of people who do not do regular sports training. The results of this study will be compared to the results of astronauts.
At the moment, the evaluation of the data is ongoing and the search for test persons has been completed.
