Greg Grosicki, Ph.D., CEP
Greg Grosicki, Ph.D., CEP, currently serves as an assistant professor of kinesiology in the Department of Health Sciences and Kinesiology and director of the exercise physiology laboratory in the Biodynamics and Human Performance Center at Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology at The College of William and Mary, a Master’s degree in Health and Exercise Science at Wake Forest University and a doctorate in Human Bioenergetics in the Human Performance Laboratory at Ball State University. As a postdoctoral scholar, his research focused on mechanisms underlying the age-related loss of muscle mass and function (sarcopenia), and the utility of exercise and nutritional interventions to offset this condition. He conducts research examining exercise and nutritional interventions to improve human performance in a variety of individuals, from athletes to older adults. Specific areas of interest include therapeutic modulation of gut microbiota, using either diet and/or physical activity, as a means to enhance health and wellness. A vehement believer in practicing what you preach, when not spending time with his wife and dogs, he is an avid endurance athlete competing in races such as the Boston Marathon and Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii.
