Thomas G. Martin

Professor of Biomedical Sciences

Chair of Biomedical Sciences

Program Director of Bms, Microbiology and Immunology

Thomas Martin earned his undergraduate and master degrees from Quinnipiac University in the fields of Health and Science Studies and Medical Laboratory Sciences and received his Ph.D in Pathobiology from the University of Connecticut. While his graduate research focused mainly on animal disease modeling for Clostridium pathogens, his interest in human physiology has been his main passion and primary area of teaching and research since joining the Department of Biomedical Sciences in 2010.

He currently teaches a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses that focus on various aspects of human health, disease and performance. His primary teaching responsibilities are Pathophysiology (BMS 318 & BMS 518) Medical Terminology (PA 502), Human Physiology (PA 515), and Disease Mechanisms (PA 535).

His current research focuses on investigating the effects of fatigue on the human body with a primary emphasis on overtraining and endurance running. He also works with a number of the University’s Athletic teams assessing sports performance and injury prevention strategies. He has worked with over 40 students on various research projects from the Biomedical Sciences and Physical Therapy Departments as well as the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine and emphasis collaboration and interdisciplinary research practices. Many of his research students have presented their work at the American College of Sports Medicine regional and national meetings.

As Department Chair and Program Director of the Biomedical Sciences and Microbiology & Immunology programs he strives to create impactful, hands-on opportunities for our students in both teaching and research. His emphasis is a student-centered learning environment as well as a strong sense of community.
