Dr. James Jeremy McCormick is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow within the Human and Environmental Physiology Research Unit (HEPRU) at the University of Ottawa, Canada. Jeremy completed his graduate work in Exercise Physiology at the University of New Mexico Department of Health, Exercise, and Sports Science where he studied physiological responses to exercise and various dietary supplemental interventions during heat and hypoxic exposure. He also gained experience in techniques in molecular biology working with the University of New Mexico Department of Internal Medicine studying cellular stress responses in the elderly and people with chronic disease. Jeremy’s doctoral thesis examined the cellular mechanisms of autophagy and heat shock proteins in prediabetic individuals in response to exercise and simulated cellular starvation. His current research focus is the cellular stress response mechanisms to heat exposure in vulnerable populations.

Dr. Robert D. Meade is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Human and Environmental Physiology Research Unit and is also pursuing a Masters in Public Health (Epidemiology) at the T.H. Chan School of Public Health at Harvard University. His research is directed at understanding the physiological impacts of extreme heat events (heatwaves) and evaluating the effectiveness of commonly recommended heat-mitigation strategies (e.g., cooling centres) in healthy individuals and those with common chronic health conditions (e.g., type 2 diabetes, hypertension). He is also interested in the design of translational physiological research for complimenting public health research and practice.
