Dr Felipe Damas earned his doctorate at the University of São Paulo and McMaster University. Nowadays, he’s a postdoc at the Federal University of São Carlos researching exercise physiology, specifically on muscle adaptations to resistance training, focusing on mechanisms such as muscle damage, muscle protein synthesis, satellite cells, to better understand muscle hypertrophy.
