Muscle Physiology Lab – Bruce Gladden, Ph.D.

< Kinesiology Labs

The Muscle Physiology Laboratory has a 25-year history in the School of Kinesiology at Auburn University.  Its overall emphasis is the regulation of metabolism during exercise.  Studies are typically interpreted in the context of human physiology and biochemistry. The primary experimental model has been isolated, blood-perfused canine muscle. However, studies on humans have been done in this lab, as well.

Bruce Gladden, Ph.D. is the director of the Muscle Physiology Lab. His research interests include:

  • Lactate Metabolism
  • O2 Uptake On-Kinetics/Mitochondrial Metabolism
  • Exercise Metabolism
  • Biochemistry of Exercise
  • Control of Blood Flow during Exercise
  • Exercise Fatigue
