Kevin K. McCully PhD
Associate Professor of Exercise Sciences University of Georgia Athens, GA

Dr. Kevin K. McCully is an Associate Professor of Exercise Science, and Faculty of the Gerontology Center at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia. His PhD is from the University of Michigan in the Department of Physiology and he spent a number of years as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. McCully has consistently contributed in the field of exercise and aging and his recent grant support includes: “the impact of age on muscle blood flow in humans” and “community based interventions to improve cardiovascular health in older adults”, and he is also known for his work in peripheral vascular disease and aging.

Recent work has involved studies of muscle blood flow and muscle oxidative capacity in chronic fatigue syndrome, and vascular health in spinal cord injury patients. In relation to his present talk, Dr. McCully is perhaps most regarded as a pioneer in the understanding, development, and application of new technologies in human research. In 1988 he published the first of many contributions using magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and in 1994 used near-infrared spectroscopy in combination with magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Dr. McCully is funded by the NIH and has served the NIH on review and program evaluation panels. Top
