Dr. Enos is an Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina, School of Medicine. Dr. Enos received his BA and BS degrees from the College of Wooster and the University of Northern Colorado, respectively and an MS from Baylor University. Dr. Enos earned his PhD from the University of South Carolina in Exercise Science (Applied Physiology) – the number one ranked kinesiology doctoral program in the United States. The Enos Lab is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms regulating sex differences in obesity, particularly with respect to metabolic and inflammatory processes. A particular emphasis is the role that sex steroids and their tissue-specific receptors have in regulating glucose and fatty acid metabolism. Additionally, the lab is interested in exploring complementary and alternative therapies for the treatment of menopause-induced side effects, including excess fat mass accrual as well as metabolic and inflammatory perturbations. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment in order to perform metabolic phenotyping of rodent models. To date, Dr. Enos has published over 50 peer-reviewed publications and is currently funded by an NIH K01 Career Development Award.
