Stephen M. Roth, Ph.D.
Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies
Exercise Physiology, Aging and Genetics
Areas of Interest:
Dr. Roth's areas of interest include understanding the role of genetic variation (and environmental interaction) in determining inter-individual differences in body composition, sarcopenia risk, exercise responses, and other health-related phenotypes, as well as understanding the role of exercise/physical activity in modifying DNA structure (e.g., telomere length, methylation). He directs the Functional Genomics Laboratory.
