Dr. Marialice Kern, Professor
Dr. Marialice Kern, Graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 1988 (Physical Education), area of specialization in Exercise Physiology, and joined the faculty at SFSU in 1994. Before joining the faculty at SFSU, all Dr. Kern's work was focused on the regulation of glucose metabolism, using animal models. At SFSU, her focus has shifted to human research. Dr. Kern's primary research interests still focus on energy metabolism (different dietary protocols and nutritional supplements affects on weight loss and performance), and has also included accurate body composition assessment in older individuals. Dr. Kern is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), Past-President of the Southwest regional chapter of ACSM, and is currently the regional representative to the national organization. She is also the director of the Exercise Physiology Laboratory.
Dr. Matt Lee, Associate Professor
Dr. Lee received his Ph.D. from Louisiana State University (2001) in Exercise Physiology. He has been a member of the Kinesiology faculty at San Francisco State University since 2001 and currently teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in the areas of exercise physiology, testing and prescription. His major research emphases include clinical exercise physiology and autonomic nervous system control of the cardiovascular system.

Dr. Mark Gorelick, Assistant Professor
Dr Gorelick's (Ph.D., 2006, University of Wollongong) 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, post-surgical outcomes, in vitro muscle physiology analysis and non-invasive diagnostic tools for muscle injury.
