Dr. Meng Ni is an assistant professor in exercise science at the Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. She finished her PhD in exercise physiology from the University of Miami in 2015. Her research interest is in the development of physical and functional evaluation and design of preventive and rehabilitative exercise intervention for older adults with Parkinson’s disease. Trained as a physical therapist, Dr. Ni emphasizes the clinical application of assessment and intervention model that could be accessed by physicians, therapists, and patients. After completing a two-year post-doctoral fellowship at the Dept. of PM&R, Harvard Medical School, Dr. Ni has integrated her clinical practice with research and examined the exercise effect on brain oscillatory pattern, and this allows a better understanding on exercise as an anti-parkinsonism agent on mediating pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease.
