Barney is a Postdoctoral Associate at the University of Calgary, experienced in skeletal muscle health, exercise physiology, and cellular biochemistry. Barney is passionate about the prescription of exercise as a form of medicine for healthier living, primarily focused on the expression and regulation of proteins within skeletal muscle in response to age, exercise, disease and/or nutrition in a muscle fibre type-dependent manner.
