The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation has named Michael Stout, Ph.D., as an associate member of the Aging and Metabolism Research Program. He joins OMRF from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.
Research in Stout’s lab will focus on the role of sex hormones and their receptors in the development and progression of age-related chronic diseases that occur in a sex-specific manner in older adults. His current work includes a study of ovarian cellular function and the role of estrogen signaling in the male brain during aging.
Among his numerous scientific accolades, Stout most recently received the 2021 OUHSC Provost’s Research Award for exemplary research for a Junior Faculty member.
Stout completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, after earning his Ph.D. in nutrition and metabolism at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.
