He is Principal Investigator of the UMSOM Claude Pepper Older Americans Independence Center and NIA training program in exercise, nutrition and metabolism in aging, and Co-Director of the UMSOM Center for Research on Aging. Dr. Goldberg leads clinical and translational research examining the whole body, adipose, muscle and genetic mechanisms underlying the cardiometabolic effects of weight loss with and without aerobic exercise training on lipid and glucose metabolism and functional capacity in obese older people with diabetes, metabolic syndrome, stroke and ICU survivors. The goals are to understand mechanisms of disease, and develop novel exercise rehabilitation and dietary interventions to transform health care practices to reduce risk for complications of chronic disease and disability in older adults. He has published >200 peer-reviewed manuscripts, and mentored >60 pre- and post-doctoral trainees and junior faculty in clinical aging, exercise and metabolism research.
