Research Description:

The overall focus of my research is to determine the novel molecular mechanisms of exercise that improve metabolic health. This will be broken down into three major aspects: 1) To determine exercise-induced adaptations to white and brown adipose tissue; 2) to ascertain the effects of parental exercise on the metabolic health of offspring; and 3) to elucidate the effects of exercise that can mediate the hypermetabolic response to burn injury.

These various lines of investigation will help define the molecular basis for the important adaptations that occur with exercise, and will have important ramifications for patients with metabolic and cardiovascular diseases.
