This episode is all about muscle!! Liverpool Football Club Doctor Jim Moxon and the University’s Professor of Musculoskeletal Science Anne MacArdle join Professor Tom Solomon to talk muscle – maximising its potential on the football field, minimising its deterioration as we age, and an amazing experiment sending muscle to the International Space Station.

Dr Jim Moxon joined Liverpool FC as the head of sports medicine and fitness at the Academy in the summer of 2016, before moving to Melwood in 2020 in the role of club doctor. You can follow him @JimMoxon on Twitter.

The University of Liverpool's Professor Anne McArdle is about to launch a MicroAge experiment in Florida working in partnership with the UK Space Agency to send muscle cells up to the ISS to study age-related loss of muscle mass in microgravity!
