W. Todd Cade, PT, PhD
Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy and Internal Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO, USA
Dr. Cade´s research interests include mechanisms and treatments for whole-body and myocardial nutrient metabolism abnormalities in various metabolic diseases. He has been involved with BSF since 2006 when he first attended our international conference to participate in the clinical consultation sessions with Dr. Barry Byrne and Dr. Carolyn Spencer. Dr. Cade is very important to BSF, since his background in exercise biology makes him uniquely qualified to perform certain clinical studies with BTHS individuals. Dr. Cade received a prestigious National Institutes of Health (NIH) R01 award in 2012 and also has been awarded three BSF grants for projects pertaining to exercise training and nutrient metabolism.
Dr. Cade earned a PhD in Rehabilitation Science/Applied Physiology from the University of Maryland, a BSc in Kinesiological Science from the University of Maryland, an MSc in Physical Therapy from the University of Miami, Florida and is a licensed physical therapist. He completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Washington University School of Medicine, and holds an NIH-funded Career Development Award from the NIH. Dr. Cade is a forward-looking researcher who has been, and will be, an important player in our efforts to perform clinical studies with BTHS individuals. His wife, Ashley, has become a strong BSF volunteer as well.
