Dr. Mark Hargreaves' presentation on "Exercise and Skeletal Muscle GLUT4" gave the audience evidence of the high quality of research currently underway in the human performance field. 

A professor of physiology at the University of Melbourne, Australia, Hargreaves has over 100 refereed articles and over 25 book chapters to his credit. He earned both his bachelors and doctoral degrees at the University of Melbourne.

Hargreaves drew attention to his initial research effort while at Ball State concerning

While in Muncie, Hargreaves spent time with Dr. David Costill as well as Dr. Scott Trappe, the director of BSU's Human Performance Laboratory.
