    E. Todd Schroeder, PhD, FACSM

    Dr. Schroeder's investigations have focused on anabolic interventions (androgen therapy and resistance training) to increase muscle mass and strength, ultimately improving physical function and quality of life in older adults.  He is currently investigating the mechanisms whereby progressive resistance training and testosterone treatment stimulate protein synthesis and improve muscle quality in older persons. His additional research interests include understanding the mechanisms (signals/factors) associated with eccentric resistance exercise that induces hypertrophic adaptations and the implications of such exercise in older individuals to optimize rehabilitation.
