Dr. Jason White earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and a Master of Science degree in sport physiology from Ohio University, and then was employed by Emory University as an exercise physiologist. After a brief stay at Emory University, he returned to school to attain a Doctor of Philosophy degree in human physiology and muscle biology. As a professor he has taught courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels that relate to athlete performance, exercise prescription, and human, exercise, and cardiovascular physiology. His research interests include practical exercise related research, performance, and muscle development with analysis via ultrasound. He is currently a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association and the American College of Sports Medicine.
