Dr. Jacob Barkley, Ph.D.

MACC Annex 163E

Dr. Barkley's research training is in pediatric exercise physiology and behavioral medicine. His current research focuses on factors that affect a child's motivation to participate in physical activity. This includes examining the effects of variety, peer influence and adiposity on the decision to participate in physical or sedentary activities. He also has an interest in biostatistics and research design.

Dr. Ellen Glickman, Ph.D., FACSM

MACC Annex 161D

Dr. Glickman is a recognized expert in the area of environmental physiology with ~76 original, full-length papers in scientific journals, 3 technical reports and 1 Book Chapter.  She is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine, a reviewer for many of the top journals in her field, including Medicine in Science and Sport and Exercise, European Journal of Applied Physiology and Occupational Physiology and Aviation Space and Environmental Medicine. She has been an invited lecturer at numerous national (i.e., The American College of Sports Medicine, Wilderness Medical Society) and International Conferences (International Conference of Environmental Ergonomics (ICEE), Oxford University Roundtable, government research laboratories (i.e., Brooks AFB, US Army Research Institute Environmental Medicine USARIEM) and Universities.  In 2001, The Wilderness Medical Society Awarded Dr. Glickman their Research Award for their Outstanding Scientist. Most recently, Dr. Glickman has partnered with Orbital Research Inc., (Cleveland, OH) a STEM initiative, to enhance our knowledge in the area of environmental physiology with technology to better understand human physiology. Dr. Glickman received her Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh from 1989 -1995. She was part of the Department of Kinesiology at Louisiana State University and had an environmental physiology laboratory at Pennington Biomedical Research Center.  In 1995 Dr. Glickman joined the faculty at Kent State University and has continued her work in acute cold exposure. She started at USARIEM as a National Research Council Scientist and continues to serve as a contract employee with USARIEM as part of the Military Nutrition Division. Finally, Dr. Glickman has been Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator on numerous externally funded projects during her time at Kent State University.

Dr. J. Derek Kingsley, Ph.D.

MACC Annex 161B

Dr. Kingsley's area of research is autonomic modulation in response to resistance exercise and resistance exercise training in healthy individuals and those with chronic diseases.  He completed his undergraduate work at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro and his graduate work at Florida State University.  Upon completion of his doctorate he took a faculty position at Indiana State University before joining the faculty at Kent State University in 2013.  His research has primarily encompassed improving quality of life in women with Fibromyalgia through the use of resistance exercise but also alternative medicine such as chiropractic care and low-level laser therapy.

Dr. John McDaniel, Ph.D.

MACC Annex 162C

Dr. McDaniel joined the Exercise Physiology Department in 2010.  He received his Master's degree from the University of South Carolina and his Doctoral degree from the University of Utah.  During his Doctoral training he employed both animal and human models to investigate basic muscle function.  He then joined Russell Richardson's laboratory team during two years of post-doctoral training at the Salt Lake City Veterans Affairs Medical Center.  During those years his research focused on vascular health and blood flow regulation in both healthy and diseased populations.  Since he became a faculty member at Kent State University he has continued to investigate peripheral vascular function in a variety of populations including Parkinson's disease, stroke and spinal cord injured patients.  In addition, he  continues to utilize single-leg cycling as a exercise modality to maximize peripheral adaptations in young and old healthy populations.

Dr. Angela Ridgel, Ph.D.

MACC Annex 163F

Dr. Ridgel is an Associate Professor in Exercise Science/Physiology. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology from The College of William and Mary in Virginia, a Master's degree in Biology at Villanova University in Pennsylvania and her Doctoral degree in Biomedical Sciences from Marshall University in West Virginia. Dr. Ridgel completed her Post-Doctoral training at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic. Her early work used animal models to examine the neurobiology of movement and the effects of aging on movement. Most recently, she has been interested in how aging and neurological disorders limits movement and cognition in humans. Dr. Ridgel's current research project examines how exercise can be used for neurorehabilitation in elderly individuals and those with Parkinson's disease. Her research is currently funded through a National Institutes of Health R21 grant. She has ongoing research collaborations with Cleveland Clinic, University Hospital, Case Western Reserve University and Rockwell Automation.
