Dr. Brandt Pence

I received my B.A. in Movement and Sports Science at Purdue University and my Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology at the University of Illinois Urbana- Champaign. I then completed four years of postdoctoral training in nutrition at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I joined the University of Memphis faculty in the fall of 2016 as an assistant professor in the School of Health Studies. My current research focuses on the role of metabolism in innate immune function in aging and age-related disease.
