Potential Students:

Students who are interested in undergraduate research training opportunities or in pursuing graduate studies are encouraged to contact Dr. Molgat-Seon via email.

Research Interests:

Dr. Molgat-Seon is an exercise physiologist with a particular interest in respiratory physiology. The overarching aim of his research is to improve our understanding of the influence of respiratory factors on exercise performance in healthy humans across the lifespan and in patients with chronic respiratory disease. To accomplish this aim, Dr. Molgat-Seon employs an integrative approach involving in vivo assessments of respiratory, cardiovascular, and muscular function during whole-body and isolated muscle exercise. Current projects are focused on determining the effects of sex-differences in respiratory system morphology on the integrative physiological response to exercise in healthy adults and how this might be modulated by the healthy aging process.
