Developing the compendium of
molecular transducers (the 'molecular map')
that respond to acute and chronic exercise.

This ten-year program is the largest targeted NIH investment of funds into the mechanisms of how physical activity improves health and prevents disease. MoTrPAC is supported by the NIH Common Fund, and is managed by a program team led by the NIH Office of Strategic Coordination (OSC), National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), and the National Institute on Aging (NIA), and by a trans-agency working group representing multiple NIH institutes and centers.
