Greg Grosicki, Ph.D., CEP

Greg Grosicki, Ph.D., CEP, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Sciences and Kinesiology and Director of the Exercise Physiology Laboratory. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology at The College of William and Mary, a Master’s in Health and Exercise Science at Wake Forest, and a Doctorate in Human Bioenergetics in the Human Performance Laboratory at Ball State University. As a postdoctoral scholar, his research focused on the contribution of the gut microbiome to the age-related loss of muscle mass and function (sarcopenia). Broadly, his primary research interest is to identify novel and effective strategies to prevent and treat high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. More specifically, he is interested in investigating interactions between lifestyle behaviors (e.g., physical activity, sleep, diet, sedentary behavior) and cardiovascular health, inclusive of the role of the gut microbiome in mediating the protective and therapeutic benefits of health-promoting behaviors. A vehement believer in practicing what you preach, when not spending time with his daughter, he is an avid endurance athlete competing in races such as the Boston Marathon and Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
