Dr. Nathaniel Jenkins received a B.A. (2011) in Exercise Science with a minor in Athletic Training from Messiah College, and a M.S. (2013) and Ph.D. (2016) in Exercise Physiology and Nutrition from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health and Human Performance and Co-Director of the Applied Neuromuscular Physiology Laboratory at Oklahoma State University. Dr. Jenkins’ main research interests include the non-invasive assessment of neuromuscular function and motor unit behavior, acute and chronic neuromuscular responses to resistance training, the effects of age on neuromuscular function, and the effects of nutrition and dietary supplementation on health and human performance across the lifespan. He has published over 65 peer-reviewed journal articles in journals such as Frontiers in Physiology, the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, Experimental Gerontology, the European Journal of Applied Physiology, Lipids, the European Journal of Pharmacology, Muscle and Nerve, and the Journal of Musculoskeletal and Neuronal Interactions. He is a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), and American Physiological Society (APS), and is recertified with distinction by the NSCA both as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS,*D) and a Certified Personal Trainer (NSCA-CPT,*D).
