Stephanie E. Hall, PhD

Clinical Assistant Professor and Internship Coordinator, Department of Kinesiology

Stephanie Hall

Stephanie Hall joined Boise State University in 2015. Prior to joining the kinesiology department, she held an NIH-funded Postdoctoral Fellowship in a skeletal muscle physiology laboratory at the University of Florida. While at Florida, she studied the mechanisms responsible for respiratory muscle weakness in patients subjected to prolonged periods of mechanical ventilation.

Hall received her doctorate and master’s degrees from the University of Northern Colorado. While she worked on her degrees, she studied the life threatening cardiovascular effects of the chemotherapy drug doxorubicin and the protection provided with exercise. Although these foci seem miles apart, the underlying message is that exercise can be used in the treatment and prevention of disease. Here at Boise State, Hall will continue her work in understanding the effects of exercise and physical activity in the treatment and prevention of disease.

Dr. Hall lives in Boise with her husband Matt and their two boys. Together they enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, and generally anything outdoors.
