Kevin A. Murach, Ph.D., received his undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, completed a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, then earned his Ph.D. in Human Bioenergetics from the Ball State Human Performance Laboratory in Muncie, Indiana. His dissertation was a collaboration with NASA aimed at optimizing the exercise prescription for astronauts on the International Space Station. After Ball State, Dr. Murach spent six years as a post-doctoral fellow/scholar studying muscle stem cells at the University of Kentucky Center for Muscle Biology in Lexington under the guidance of Drs. Charlotte Peterson and John McCarthy. He now is an Assistant Professor at the University of Arkansas. His current research uses human muscle samples, primary cell culture and genetically modified mouse models to understand the molecular cues that drive exercise adaptations and aging, and the interaction between the two.

Learning objectives:

  1. Discuss methodological considerations for studying skeletal muscle epigenetics (specifically DNA methylation)
  2. Introduce a murine exercise model for studying the epigenetics of muscle adaptation
  3. Present information on skeletal muscle epigenetics with exercise and aging
