Dr. Bain joined the Department of Kinesiology in the summer of 2018. Prior to Windsor, Dr. Bain completed his postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Colorado, Boulder, at the Integrative Vascular Biology Laboratory. His current research interests encompass the integrative aspects of human cardiovascular and cerebrovascular function in health and disease, as well as vascular endothelial function in humans exposed to extreme environments.
The broad aim of Dr. Bain’s research program is to partition the mechanisms responsible for vascular endothelial dysfunction leading to cardio and cerebral vascular events - the leading cause of death globally. To better understand basic vascular function in humans, a secondary facet of Dr. Bain’s research program is determining how the peripheral and cerebral vasculature cope and adapt to extreme environmental stressors, such us heat stress and hypoxemia. This latter aspect has taken Dr. Bain’s research program across the globe with studies in high altitude natives (Andeans), as well as in professional breath hold divers from Croatia.
