Kinesiology scholars receive seed grants for research from ISU PostDoc Association and Graduate College

May 22, 2019

Angelique Brellenthin and Gabriella McLoughlin recently received seed grants to help support their postdoctoral research agendas from the Iowa State University PostDoc Association and the Graduate College.

Brellenthin, who works with Duck-chul (DC) Lee, received a $2,400 grant to examine adaptations of the endocannabinoid system — a stress-adjusting biological system present in all human tissues and fluids — in response to aerobic, resistance, and combined exercise training, in a subsample of CardioRACE study participants.

McLoughlin, who works with Greg Welk in the Physical Activity and Health Promotion Laboratory, received a $2,400 grant to run a pilot study to refine the Youth Activity Profile, a calibrated self-assessment tool developed at Iowa State that captures school-based physical activities and sedentary behaviors.

Brellenthin and McLoughlin will serve as principal investigators on these projects. The seed grant awards underscore the exceptional opportunities Iowa State University researchers receive early in their careers to conduct high-impact studies.
