UTSA physiologist William Cooke named 2013 Lecture Series Speaker by Texas Sports Medicine Chapter
Date:12/3/2012

William Cooke, a professor in the UTSA College of Education and Human Development's Department of Health and Kinesiology, has been selected to serve as the speaker of the Texas Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM)'s 2013 Lecture Tour. Over the course of a week, Cooke will deliver lectures at a series of Texas educational institutions on behalf of ACSM's Texas Chapter.

"This is a big honor for both Bill and our department," said Wan Yao, associate professor and chair of the Department of Health and Kinesiology. "In the past, most if not all of the lecturers were by scholars from the big dog Texas universities. Now, UTSA is becoming a big dog because of the hard and productive work from outstanding faculty like Bill."

Cooke studies the regulation of the human cardiovascular system and specifically focuses on how autonomic mechanisms control heart rate, arterial pressure and cerebral blood flow. His research has applications to general physiology, spaceflight physiology, exercise physiology and battlefield medicine. His research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, NASA, the American Heart Association and the Department of Defense.

The physiologist received his bachelor's and master's degrees in Human Performance from the University of Houston, Clear Lake, and he earned his doctorate in Kinesiology and Exercise Physiology from Texas A&M University, College Station. He completed post-doctoral training in the Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Cardiology, at the Medical College of Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University.

The Texas Chapter of the ACSM is the local arm of a national scientific society that seeks to promote scientific and clinical knowledge in the fields relating to sports and exercise. Each year, the chapter hosts a spring lecture tour, presenting one distinguished speaker to visit and connect with students and faculty across multiple Texas universities. The Texa
