David Bartlett is an Instructor in the Department of Medicine, Division of Medical Oncology. He earned his PhD in Immunology from the University of Birmingham, England where he specialized in the effects of exercise and lifestyles on immune function and systemic inflammation in the elderly. He was awarded a coveted Marie Curie Outgoing Fellowship from the European Union which brought him to Duke under the guidance of William Kraus, MD where he assessed the immunological and physiological responses of exercise training in patients with prediabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. His laboratory studies the effects of exercise and energy balance on immune function and physiology of patient groups including cancer, arthritis and diabetes. His research program is focused on human studies employing a wide range of techniques including human physiological testing such as cardiopulmonary fitness assessment, exercise training to in vitro and ex vivo cellular assays.
