Dr. Dave Clarke is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology at Simon Fraser University. He directs the Laboratory for Quantitative Exercise Biology, the mission of which is to develop predictive models of the adaptations to exercise training to better understand exercise training biology and to discover ways to optimize exercise training programs for health, fitness, rehabilitation or performance goals. His interests in regenerative medicine pertain to muscle tissue engineering, the emerging field of quantitative systems pharmacology, and active rehabilitation (i.e., improving function through exercise).
Dr. Clarke obtained Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in kinesiology at Laurentian University and the University of Waterloo, respectively. He then obtained a Ph.D. in chemical and biological engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder, followed by completing postdoctoral training in the Department of Biological Engineering at MIT.
