Dr. Short is an Associate Professor and the CHF Choctaw Nation Endowed Chair in Pediatric Endocrinology.   He earned graduate degrees in exercise physiology (MS, Purdue University) and human bioenergetics (PhD, Ball State University) and completed post-doctoral training in endocrinology and metabolism (Mayo Clinic).  He joined the OUHSC team in 2006.


Education:

He earned graduate degrees in exercise physiology (MS, Purdue University) and human bioenergetics (PhD, Ball State University) and completed post-doctoral training in endocrinology and metabolism (Mayo Clinic).


Clinical/Research Interests:

Dr. Short’s training and experience in exercise physiology, endocrinology, and metabolism have directed his research interests toward identifying the most effective approaches to identify, prevent, and reverse cardiometabolic disease risk in children and young adults, thereby limiting a potential lifetime of pathology and medical burden.  His studies use tests of exercise capacity, body composition, vascular function, and stable isotope tracers, and biochemical and molecular sample analyses to conduct detailed clinical and metabolic assessments of human subjects.  His recent and ongoing projects examine the disordered metabolism, vascular function, and cardiac autonomic regulation driving the pathophysiology of obesity, diabetes, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in adolescents.  He has previously served as research mentor for 4 fellows in our section, all of whom have presented their work at national meetings and published in peer-reviewed journals.
