Parise, Gianni BW


Gianni Parise is Associate Dean of the Faculty of Science, Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and the Lab Lead at the Exercise Metabolism Research Group. A focus of Gianni's laboratory involves revealing the mechanism(s) underlying the progressive loss of muscle mass associated with aging. Gianni’s research shows that a loss of muscle mass with aging, and a blunted hypertrophic response to chronic exercise in older adults, is likely a result of age-related muscle stem cell dysfunction and/or age-related loss of muscle stem cell number. His research program aims to examine potential age-related impairment of muscle stem cells, as well as the molecular and cellular events that lead to dysregulation of muscle stem cells in advanced age.
