Ryan Callahan, B.S.
I was an undergraduate student in the Kinesiology department at the University of Massachusetts. I have been active in the Muscle Biology and Imaging Laboratory since 2008 and have worked on the STOMP study (the effect of satins on muscle performance) and the White Blood Cell study (to examine gene expression in white blood cells). Currently I am a staff member on the Smoking study, which is investigating the effects of smoking on the molecular mechanisms of skeletal muscle repair after eccentric exercise and the STOMP study. I plan to attend graduate school for physical therapy and continue to be active in the health research field.
Prior to UMass, I attended Northern Essex Community College and Fitchburg State College where I studied Clinical Exercise Science. I also played baseball as a collegiate athlete at all three schools.
