Dr. Schlader’s predominant duties on the Editorial Board are to review manuscripts in his areas of focus, as well as attending the journal’s annual meeting.

“The American Journal of Physiology is one of the preeminent physiology journals in the U.S.,” stated Dr. Schlader. “I am proud and honored to be appointed to this editorial board.”

According to the journal’s website its aim is to, “Publish original investigations that illuminate normal or abnormal regulation and integration of physiological mechanisms at all levels of biological organization, ranging from molecules to humans, including clinical investigations. Major areas of emphasis include regulation in genetically modified animals; model organisms and comparative functional genomics; development and tissue plasticity; neurohumoral control of circulation and hypertension; local control of circulation; cardiac and renal integration; thirst and volume, electrolyte homeostasis; appetite and obesity, and inflammation and cytokines.”

Dr. Schlader completed his postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. He received his PhD from the School of Sport and Exercise at Massey University in New Zealand and his masters degree from Indiana University. His current research interest areas are environmental physiology, exercise physiology, and temperature regulation.
