Dr. Dungan received his PhD in Exercise and Nutrition Sciences from SUNY at Buffalo under Dr. David Williamson and his postdoctoral work at the UK Center for Muscle Biology with Dr. Charlotte Peterson. He was promoted to research assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy in 2021. Dr. Dungan’s lab broadly studies the molecular mechanisms regulating muscle growth and atrophy in the context of aging and obesity, specifically, the contribution of senescent cells to anabolic resistance. He also investigates the mechanisms regulating muscle-brain crosstalk following exercise training. He is currently funded by Boehringer Ingelheim Inc. and the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging.
