Matt Jackman, PhD
Dr. Jackman is a Senior Instructor in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Prior to working at the University of Colorado Denver, my research background was focused on mitochondrial bioenergetics in hepatic and skeletal muscle mitochondria. More recent studies have been focused on isolated skeletal muscle mitochondrial respiration studies in obesity prone (OP) and obesity resistant (OR) rats and mice, and permeabilized human skeletal muscle fibers. Ongoing mitochondrial respiration studies include permeabilized rat/mouse skeletal muscle fibers, osteocytes, and breast cancer cells. In addition to taking over the mitochondrial function sub-core of the MCA, Dr. Jackman has been the Assistant Director of the Anschutz Health and Wellness Animal Satellite facility since 2010.
