Carlos Zepeda, M.S.
Background: My interest in muscle physiology developed from my experience as an undergraduate student where I first learned about cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying skeletal muscle adaptations to exercise. With a new found passion for trying to better understand muscle plasticity, I decided to pursue a career in academia. During my Master’s, my research focused on utilizing cellular imaging techniques to examine skeletal muscle responses to high intensity exercise. Currently, my research is focused on trying to identify the mechanisms contributing to age-related decrements in physical function and performance.
Outside the Lab: In my free time, I enjoy running, playing soccer, and golfing. I also enjoy listening to music and traveling.
