Career Specialties: Eric Arnold specializes in exercise physiology. His current research investigates the effect of high-intensity interval training on the metabolic profile and exercise adherence in overweight individuals and those with prediabetes. Previous research utilized molecular biology and muscle physiology laboratory techniques to address the effect of mechanical overload on skeletal muscle adaptations in the Obese Zucker Rat (fa/fa), a model of insulin resistance and genetic obesity.
Professional and Community Activities: Arnold received additional research training in biochemistry, molecular biology and muscle physiology laboratory techniques at the Robert C. Byrd Biotechnology Science Center, Laboratory of Molecular Physiology, Marshall University.
