Terence E. Ryan, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) in the department of Applied Physiology & Kinesiology.  Throughout the course of his academic and research training, Dr. Ryan has acquired a wealth of laboratory techniques and experimental models to study mitochondrial and cellular biology in cells, pre-clinical research models, as well as clinical studies in human patients.  He joined the University of Florida after completing postdoctoral training at the East Carolina Diabetes and Obesity Institute within the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University where he was supported by a National Research Service Award from NHLBI to study the role of mitochondria in peripheral artery disease pathology. Current work in his lab aims to decipher the mechanisms by which cellular metabolism and mitochondria regulate pathologic burden, muscle regeneration, and angiogenesis in peripheral arterial disease (PAD) which is supported by grants from the American Heart Association & NIH. 

Research Interests
