Guillaume Spielmann, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the School of Kinesiology at LSU and an adjunct Assistant Professor at Pennington Biomedical Research Center. He earned a BSc in Immunology and Toxicology at Edinburgh Napier University (Scotland) and a MSc in Exercise Science at the University of Houston. He obtained his PhD in Exercise Immunology from Edinburgh Napier University, before working for three years on a NASA-funded project as a postdoctoral fellow.
Dr. Spielmann’s research focuses on the impact of various psychological and physiological stressors on the immune system. In particular his research centers on the influence of obesity, physical inactivity, microgravity and poor aerobic fitness on premature immune aging. He is also interested in the impact of physical inactivity, aging and latent viral infections on immune cells bioenergetics and systemic dysmetabolism.
