Broadly, Scott Kelly’s research interests entail the proximate and ultimate mechanisms surrounding complex traits, with an emphasis on voluntary locomotion.

Specifically, he has focused on physiological systems and their phenotypic plasticity in response to long-term exercise training; genetic architecture of voluntary activity, body composition, and gut microbiome composition; and the relationship between voluntary activity and human-health related diseases such as cancer and obesity.
