Biography

Dr. Mikesky is a professor in the Department of Kinesiology in the School of Physical Education and Tourism Management at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). He is also affiliated with the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences the School of Medicine (Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy the Center for Aging Research Excellence and the Center for Translational Musculoskeletal Research at IUPUI. Since 1991 he has been director of the Human Performance and Biomechanics Laboratory and has been a research associate for the Human Performance Laboratory at the National Institute for Fitness and Sport. Dr. Mikesky has been the recipient of several campus and school teaching awards has been recognized for his work with the Diversity Scholars Undergraduate Research Program at IUPUI and received fellowship status within his profession’s most recognized organization (i.e. the American College of Sports Medicine). He has also published two books serves as invited reviewer for several recognized professional journals and has served as a consultant for collegiate national or professional sports organizations. He has been successful in grantsmanship and his research has resulted in over 80 peer-reviewed abstracts and publications. His most current research interest involves investigating the effects of resistance training combined with blood flow restriction (i.e. KAATSU training).
