Mark Gorelick, PhD
Dr. Mark Gorelick obtained his BSc and MSc degrees in Kinesiology from Dalhousie University (Canada). Following three years practicing as a Clinical Kinesiologist/ Exercise Therapist (Bermuda), he attended the University of Wollongong (Australia) to complete his PhD in Biomedical Sciences. After completing his PhD he pursued a Post Doctoral position at the Schulthess Clinic (Switzerland).
Dr. Gorelick's major research interests include the kinesiological effects of injury on the structure and function of muscles, and evidence-based best practice in exercise science and rehabilitation. Dr. Gorelick has expertise in exercise physiology, biomechanics and the inter-relation of these disciplines in respects to exercise rehabilitation. He has published in a variety of topics, including exercise and diabetes, surgical functional outcomes, in vitro muscle physiology analysis and non-invasive diagnostic tools for muscle injury identification. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor in the Kinesiology Department at San Francisco State University (Personal Page)
Adam Fraser, PhD
Dr. Adam Fraser is the founder of two extremely successful companies devoted to metabolic disease control (The Glucose Club) and health & wellness (Dr.Adam Fraser.com). Dr. Fraser is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist who has been researching the effect of exercise on chronic disease for the past 13 years. Dr. Fraser completed his PhD at the University of Wollongong, specifically looking at how exercise and diet improves the way glucose and insulin work in our body and how this can prevent Diabetes and other metabolic disorders.
Dr. Fraser has presented his research at many conferences such as the American College of Sports Medicine, the American Diabetes Association, and the World Congress on Fitness and Nutrition. He is currently working on his first book on Diabetes to be released in Dec 2008.
Dr. Fraser is a former Director on the Board of the Australian Association for Exercise and Sports Science (AAESS) and Sports Medicine Australia (SMA) and writes the health and fitness section for Men’s Style. He is a regular presenter on radio including ABC 702 and is a regular presenter on TV, including Channel 7’s Sunrise.
Matt Lee, PhD
Dr. Matt Lee obtained his PhD in Kinesiology from Louisiana State University in 2001. His primary focus during his doctoral degree was in the area of Cardiovascular and Clinical Exercise Physiology. Prior to his graduate work he received a B.S. degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now the University of Louisiana at Lafayette).
Dr. Lee is certified by the American College of Sports Medicine as an Exercise Specialist® and Registered Clinical Exercise Physiologist®. His major research emphases include clinical exercise physiology and autonomic nervous system control of the cardiovascular system. His work has been published in national and international scientific journals and he regularly presents research at national and regional scientific meetings. Dr. Lee joined the faculty at San Francisco State University in 2001 where he is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Kinesiology.
Chris Gordon, PhD
Christopher Gordon obtained his PhD in 2010 in the area of human thermoregulation from the University of Wollongong. He worked previously as a registered nurse in Australian hospitals and his graduate studies have been in exercise physiology. During his studies, Christopher has published and presented research at national and international levels and has been awarded two prizes from the International Union of Physiological Sciences (IUPS).
Christopher Gordon’s main research focus is in exercise thermoregulation and the interaction between the environment. He has coached athletes for over 10 years using scientific training methods. His primary focus is with cycling and running, and has coached athletes at Ironman triathlon and National and Master’s road cycling level.
He is currently employed as a lecturer at the University of Technology, Sydney in the Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery and Health, were he teaches bioscience. He is a member of the Australian Physiological Society (APS) and the Australian Association for Exercise and Sport Science (AAESS) and has associations with the Faculty of Science and several teaching hospitals across Sydney.
