Cemal Ozemek, PhD
Research Post-Doc Fellow
Cemal received his PhD in Clinical Exercise Physiology from Ball State University and is now a postdoctoral fellow working under the direction of Dr. Kerrie Moreau. Much of Cemal’s previous research experience has involved studying the physiological effects of exercise in cardiac patients as well as investigating the role of physical activity in the prevention of chronic diseases. Drs. Ozemek and Moreau will work together to investigate the effects of estrogen and oxidative stress on vascular and cardiac function.

Kathleen Gavin, PhD
Geriatric Post-Doc Fellow
Kathleen received her B.S. in Health and Exercise Science from Syracuse University in 2003 and her M.S. in Integrative Physiology from University of Colorado Boulder in 2005. Kathleen then worked with the IMAGE group as a Professional Research Assistant until 2008 when she returned to school to pursue her doctorate. Kathleen received her Ph.D. in Bioenergetics and Exercise Science in 2012 from East Carolina University. Her dissertation studies investigated the influence of estrogen on metabolic function and body fat distribution in premenopausal women. Currently, Kathleen is a postdoctoral fellow under the co-mentorship of Dr. Wendy Kohrt and Dr. Dwight Klemm (Pulmonary Sciences & Critical Care Medicine) working on translational studies of fat cell lineage in humans. Her overarching research interest is how the origin of fat cells may play an important role in sex specific body fat distribution and obesity related cardio-metabolic disease risk.
