Dylan Dahlquist, BS, CSCS:


Graduate Student at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver Campus

Dylan is from Ferndale, Washington and traveled south of his hometown to Bellingham, Washington where he earned his undergraduate degree in Kinesiology with a minor in Anthropology at Western Washington University. He is currently pursuing his MSc here in the Environmental Physiology Laboratory where he will be looking at the effects of nutrient timing on exercise induced inflammation and the iron regulatory protein, hepcidin, in elite athletes. Additionally, he has been working closely with the UBC Varsity Strength & Conditioning Coaches and the Canadian Sport Institute upon arrival in Canada. Being overambitious, he is already planning on getting a PhD and where he wants to conduct his post-doctorate fellowship. When not locked in his dungeon [apartment] researching on various physiology topics, he partakes in his other passions, weight-lifting, cycling and mountain running. Dylan implies that he is a health nut, yet is constantly seen eating cookies, Pop-tarts or some form of chocolate.
