Zach Swan is a senior at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and George Blackburn is a junior at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Both of these trainees will investigate the ability of exercise to protect muscle (skeletal and cardiac) and muscle function during cancer cachexia. In addition, they will examine the effectiveness of dietary interventions in cancer patients with cachexia.
