Jeff Horowitz


Dr. Horowitz is an exercise physiologist primarily interested in the regulation of fat and carbohydrate metabolism. More specifically, his interests are focused on the regulation of fuel (substrate) mobilization and oxidation and how exercise influences this regulation. The scope of his research is aimed at determining the impact of alterations in substrate metabolism on important health issues such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and advancing age.

Areas of interest

Regulation of fuel mobilization and oxidation and the impact of this regulation on human health.
