Jennifer Schrack, PhD, MS is an Associate Professor of Epidemiology with a primary research focus on the role of physiological factors in maintaining mobility and functional independence with aging. She has extensive clinical and research experience as an exercise physiologist, with an emphasis on the assessment of fatigability and free-living physical activity using accelerometers. Her recent research has expanded to include assessment of physiological mechanisms contributing to the development of an accelerated aging phenotype. She is currently the PI of two NIA-funded projects: a U01 to delineate associations among energy regulation, physical activity, and Alzheimer’s disease and a R01 examing sensorimotor contributions to the development of preclinical Alzherimer's disease.
