Joshua Wooten, Ph.D.

Professor of Exercise Physiology

Department of Applied Health

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville


I’m currently Professor of Exercise Physiology in the Department of Applied Health. I teach a variety of exercise science courses in both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

Our lab’s research is diverse, studying the preventive and therapeutic effects of exercise, physical activity, and nutrition on metabolic and inflammatory outcomes associated with cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. 

In addition, the goal of my lab is to provide both undergraduate and graduate students unique learning and training experiences that will prepare them for graduate and professional programs in exercise, nutrition, and biomedical related sciences. Our lab values and promotes diversity, inclusion, and equity.
