Dr. Jonathan Peterson received his Ph.D. in exercise physiology at West Virginia University School of Medicine. There he studied the role of fatty acid toxicity on attenuating muscle growth in severe obesity. He then became a postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Metabolism and Obesity Research at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where he investigated the function of a novel family of adipose tissue derived secreted proteins (referred to as Adipokines). Prior to joining CSR, he was a tenured associate professor at East Tennessee State University College of Public Health where his NIH-sponsored research was focused on identifying the metabolic and immunological functions of novel secreted proteins.
