[Brothers, Robert]
  • Associate Professor

Biography

R. Matthew Brothers, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in the Department of Kinesiology, at the University of Texas at Arlington. The primary focus of my research program is the investigation of mechanisms of impaired autonomic and vascular function in selected at-risk/diseased populations. This research bears implications for various physiologic conditions including thermoregulatory capacity, orthostatic tolerance, and risk for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Responses to a variety of environmental conditions and interventions are utilized to investigate the impact of impairments on physiological function in at-risk/diseased. Dr. Brothers has extensively published his research findings in a variety of scientific / clinical journals and has a history of grant funding from various federal and non-federal agencies including the National Institute of Health.

Research and Expertise

  • Research Areas of Interest

    -Vascular Function: mechanisms of impaired macro and microvascular function in at risk and diseased populations.

    -Pathophysiology: Studying altered mechanisms of the above topics leading to complications in the normal ageing process as well as a variety of disease states including hypertension, heart failure, autonomic dysfunction, diabetes, and obesity.

    -Impact of microgravity and hemorrhage on regulation of general autonomic and cardiovascular physiology. Mechanisms of neural and hormonal regulation of the aortic and carotid baroreceptors, cardiac function as well as the control of the cerebral, cutaneous, and peripheral vasculature in health and disease states.

    -Thermoregulatory Physiology: cardiac function, blood pressure control as well as cerebral, cutaneous, and peripheral blood flow during heat stress as well as during cold stress conditions.

      • KINE 6293-001 GRANT WRITING

        Description of Course Content / Course Objectives: The goal of this course is to provide students with information regarding the process of preparing, writing, and submitting a grant proposal. The focus will be geared towards the National Institute of Health (NIH) however; the fundamental concepts will be applicable for other grant funding agencies. The ability to write grants effectively, and thus convince others that your hypotheses and goals are worthy of funding, is a critical component for the success of scientists in a variety of settings including academia, government, or industry. The student will become familiar with the funding environment, distinguish among different types of grants, identify potential funders, plan and write a grant, and understand the submission and review process.

      • KINE 5320-001 ADVANCED PHYSIOLOGY OF EXERCISE

        The goal of this course is to provide students information regarding the integrative physiological response to exercise. We will discuss the mechanisms of control in healthy individuals and how these mechanisms are impaired in various scenarios as well as in “at risk” and diseased populations. The student will also gain experience in the process of critically understanding and digesting various issues related to the control of physiological systems during exercise. Lastly, the student will gain experience in presenting research topics to an audience.
