How do you get a sheep to exercise? Just ask Ann Zumwalt, a School of Medicine associate professor of anatomy and neurobiology, who has sheep bones on display in her office.
As a PhD student at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Zumwalt wrote her dissertation on the effect exercise has on muscle attachment sites. As part of her research, she put sheep on treadmills to exercise, and then compared their bone morphology, or structure, to those of sheep who had not been exercised.
