Professor Sara Campbell in the Department of Kinesiology and Health, received her BS and MS from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and PhD from Florida State University. Following her PhD she completed a three-year postdoctoral fellowship supported by the USDA investigating the ability of flaxseed to reverse atherosclerotic lesions and its ability to alter the cholesterol profile and modulate inflammatory markers. Her lab's research focuses on: 1) why do high-fat diets alter gut microbial ecology; 2) what role does exercise play in altering this outcome; 3) how (mechanism) does exercise influence intestinal integrity; and 4) what impact does this have on physiological functions to impact overall health. She is a member and Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine, President-Elect of MARC Regional Chapter, and the American Society for Nutrition and The Obesity Society. She currently teaches Exercise Physiology, Exercise Biochemistry and Nutrition for Sport and Exercise. She has taught Anatomy and Physiology I and II, Medical Terminology and Exercise Testing and Prescription previously.
