Areas of expertise:

  • Exercise biology
  • Mechanisms of human skeletal muscle regeneration and muscle mass regulation
  • Exercise-induced health benefits
  • Medical rehabilitation (acute and chronic disease, pre-surgery, post-surgery) clinical trials
  • Inter-individual Response Heterogeneity

 

 

Dr. Bamman has been fostering and leading clinical and translational research focused on exercise medicine/rehabilitation and biology since the 1990s. He has directed several exercise rehabilitation clinical trials including dose-response trials focused on: (i) molecular transducers of exercise-induced health benefits (ii) total joint arthroplasty rehabilitation (iii) Parkinson’s disease rehabilitation to promote neuroplasticity; and (v) epigenetic determinants of exercise responsiveness.

All of these human studies are biologically driven with the goal of better understanding mechanisms underpinning skeletal muscle atrophy and neuromuscular dysfunction, and exercise-induced health benefits in disease prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation.
