ADAPT Program Faculty Mentors

Faculty mentors are all from the University of Maryland School of Public Health and all have current and pending extramural funding in content areas that are highly relevant to cardiovascular disease and aging health.  Because of the School of Public Health’s emphasis on biomedical and behavioral factors surrounding important public health issues relevant to residents of Maryland and surrounding communities, the nation, and beyond, much of the faculty’s research programs are in these areas.  In particular, substantial research is on behavior, specifically physical activity/exercise training, as an exposure to affect outcomes relevant to aging health. The faculty offers a mix of expertise that ranges from laboratory-based bench research to applied community-based research.
