AMP Lab Staff

 

Knowledge gained from our team is directly disseminated through educational courses in Kinesiology and Health as well as the community. Together, we strive to provide information that helps people achieve their personal and/or academic goals.

 

Steven MalonSteve Malin

Steve Malin is the Director of the Applied Metabolism & Physiology Laboratory (AMP Lab). He has appointments in medicine and is affiliated with the New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health as well as the Institute for Translational Medicine and Science. Dr. Malin is interested in understanding how exercise can be used as a “drug” to combat obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Considering how nutrition, medication/dietary supplements and/or bariatric surgery work with exercise is an important element in the group for improving health and well-being. The working hypothesis in the lab is that insulin resistance is a key pathologic factor in chronic disease that relates to altered substrate metabolism, endothelial function, appetite, and inflammation. Apprenticeship with graduate and undergraduate students is an important approach used to advance these understandings. Dr. Malin is actively involved in various professional organizations, including American College of Sports Medicine and the American Diabetes Association, and enjoys spending time with his family, going to the beach, and cycling/hiking.

Jackie Dosik Profile Pic 2020Jaclyn Dosik

Jaclyn Dosik received her undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from the University of Michigan in 2018. Interested in deepening understanding of exercise physiology, she earned a Master’s in Kinesiology from the University of Virginia in 2020. Jaclyn is currently a Clinical Research Coordinator in the Applied Metabolism and Physiology lab of the Department of Kinesiology and Health. She is engaged in the American College of Sports Medicine and working on certification as an Exercise Physiologist so she can improve the patient experience. Her research interests include the role of traditional and non-traditional risk factors in cardiovascular disease, as well as examining the effects of exercise in treatment of chronic disease, including cancer, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes. In her free time, Jaclyn enjoys trying new exercise classes, finding new recipes, and exploring New York City.

Mary Remchak Profile Pic 2020Mary Remchak

Mary Remchak received her Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Appalachian State University in 2017. She expanded these studies by obtaining a Master of Science in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Physiology from East Carolina University in 2020. Mary has her certification as an Exercise Physiologist from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM-EP), and is a member of ACSM Nutrition, and Pregnancy and Postpartum interest groups. She is currently working on her doctorate in the Department of Kinesiology and Health with research interests in endocrinology, substrate oxidation, insulin sensitivity, atherosclerosis, chronotype, and exercise intervention. Mary has aspirations to help educate the public system on the importance of metabolic health and treat underlying causes to reduce obesity related CVD. In her free time, Mary enjoys exploring New Brunswick and local towns through running trails, participating in CrossFit classes, and roommate bonding bonfires.

Nate Stewart Profile Pic 2020Nathan Stewart

Nathan Stewart received his undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from the University of Virginia in 2020. Nathan is currently graduate student in the Kinesiology and Applied Physiology program in the Department of Kinesiology and Health. In pursuit of his Master’s/PhD, his research interests include glucose metabolism, insulin sensitivity, cardiovascular physiology, and metabolic syndrome. Using knowledge gained from studies in kinesiology, Nathan has aspirations to impact public policy for health of all people. Nathan is a member of the American College of Sports Medicine and enjoys working with undergraduates in the classroom. In his free time, Nathan enjoys exercising and binging competition shows on Netflix as well as painting [by numbers] for fun.
