Professional Background:

Reubinedde Malamug is a proud alumni of Rutgers University and graduated from the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy. She majored in Exercise Science and Public Health and minored in Environmental Policy, Institutions, & Behavior. After graduating from Rutgers University, she immediately started working at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, where she was able to work directly in patient care. She worked primarily with Multiple Myeloma, Solid Tumor Head and Neck, Breast, and Lymphoma clinics and patients. While working, she was able to obtain her certificate in Health and Hospital Law from Seton Hall Law School. Shortly after, she went on to get her Master of Health Administration degree from Drexel University’s College of Nursing and Health Professions. These things have helped her increase her knowledge and grow passionate about giving the best patient care and the patient population.

Personal Background:

Dr. Malin did his PhD in Kinesiology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and his postdoctoral fellowship work at Cleveland Clinic. For 6 years he was an Assistant Professor at the University of Virginia. The primary focus of his clinical translational research is to improve the well-being of people through preventing/treating obesity related type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. To accomplish this, Dr. Malin views exercise as a "drug" that when prescribed in an appropriate way (e.g. intensity/duration/frequency/mode) can optimize the well-being of people across the lifespan. Dr. Malin has received funding from NIH and the American Diabetes Association, and is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine. He is also passionate about teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, and is humbled to have received teaching awards that include the Student Council University of Virginia Teaching Award.

Research Interests:

A chief focus of our team is to identify novel strategies in which exercise minimizes insulin resistance for the prevention/treatment of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. While exercise and diet reduce risk for chronic disease, the optimal prescription remains unclear. Further complicating this matter is the fact that not all people respond the same way to exercise, diet, pharmacology, or bariatric surgery. Therefore, determining how to tailor treatments for maximal metabolic fitness is a knowledge gap we look to fill.
