Dr Song-Young Park joined the School of Health& Kinesiology in 2017 after completing his post-doctoral research fellowship in department of cardiology at Boston University School of Medicine.
He earned his PhD in integrative physiology from the University of Utah in 2015. Utilizing an integrative approach that combines both in-vivo and in-vitro techniques, Dr. Song-Young Park's research examines the impact of age and disease on vascular function and blood pressure regulation. He is specifically focused on the complex interactions of endothelial function, oxidative stress, and vascular function in terms of blood pressure regulation in diseased populations including peripheral artery disease (PAD), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart failure, and hypertension. He is also interested in the impacts of age and cardiovascular disease on blood flow in the brain.
Dr Park has special interests in Endothelial Mitochondrial Function, Reactive Oxygen Species, Aging, Peripheral Artery Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease.
Dr Park will be presenting at this years A4M discussing Mitochondrial-targeted Antioxidants and Cardiovascular Aging. Some very exciting research came from the University of Colorado this year and we would like to encourage anyone attending this years A4M Conference to ensure they catch Dr Park’s workshop on:
Thursday 13th December, 1:00-1:45pm.
