About Todd Manini

A native of Wintersville, Ohio, Dr. Manini attended Ohio University in Athens, OH where he graduated with honors in Biology, Exercise Science, and Biochemistry. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. as well as a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Gerontology from Syracuse University. He completed a fellowship at the Laboratory of Epidemiology, Demography and Biometry at the National Institute on Aging at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD. He is now a Tenured Associate Professor at the University of Florida (UF) in the Department of Aging and Geriatric Research. He is the Leader of the Data Science and Applied Technology Core in the UF Claude D. Pepper Older American’s Independence Center. The Core is designed to maintain pace in a world that is becoming a connected system of computing and sensing components for mobility tracking in older adults. (mHealth). At an international level, he has fellow status at two societies: The American College of Sports Medicine and The Gerontological Society of America. He is the Chair of the American College of Sports Medicine Strategic Health Initiative on Aging and he carried this leadership to the Gerontological Society of America where he is the Co-Chair of the Measurement, Statistics, and Research Design (MSRD) Interest Group. He was also honored with being a standing member on NIH’s Center for Scientific Review as part of the Neurological, Aging and Musculoskeletal Epidemiology (NAME) Study Section. Lastly, he serves on the editorial board of the Journals of Gerontology: Medical Sciences. He is an active mentor and teacher by being awarded in 2011 with the UF College of Medicine Exemplary Teachers Award. He has also recently completed the 2018 Mentor Academy professional development program that develops the next generation of clinical and translational scientists through a culture of support for mentoring and training. He graduated from the inaugural class of the CTSI’s Academy of Research Excellence His current areas of research include: 1) developing and conducting randomized interventions to combat losses in physical performance seen with aging, 2) understanding the degree to which aging modifies the metabolic cost of performing daily activities, 3) identifying the role that mitochondria have in explaining cardiovascular responsiveness to chronic physical activity and 4) developing wearable technology (e.g. smart watch) for scalable ascertainment of real-time, free-living activity and community mobility in older adults. He receives support from the National Institute on Aging, American Heart Association, The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, and National Cancer Institute for his work.
