Dr. Kristin I. Stanford received her B.S. and M.S. at Indiana University in Exercise Physiology and then went on to receive her Ph.D. at the University of California, San Diego in Biomedical Sciences. She completed her postdoctoral training at the Joslin Diabetes Center / Harvard Medical School under the direction of Dr. Laurie Goodyear. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Physiology and Cell Biology at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute .The overall focus of her research is to determine the novel molecular mechanisms of exercise that improve metabolic health by addressing 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.
