Andrew R. Coggan, Ph.D., is an associate professor in the Department of Kinesiology at the IUPUI School of Health & Human Sciences. He is also an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology in the IU School of Medicine. Coggan is an internationally recognized exercise physiologist with extensive experience as the principal investigator or co-investigator in studies of exercise and metabolic physiology in a wide range of subject populations, e.g., healthy untrained individuals, athletes, the elderly, patients with heart failure, etc. These studies have also utilized a wide range of methodologies, e.g., muscle biopsy, stable and radioactive isotopic tracers, MRI/MRS, PET, isokinetic dynamometry, etc. Most recently, his research has focused on regulation of skeletal muscle contractile function by nitric oxide and the potential of dietary nitrate for treatment of muscle dysfunction in individuals in whom nitric oxide bioavailability is impaired.
