All courses for every first-year Science student will be delivered online this fall. A limited number of students in their second, third and fourth years will return to campus for part of the semester.
The study of the acute and chronic effects of exercise and influence of physical training and nutrition
Faculty who study Integrative Physiology are broadly interested in the effects of exercise on the regulation of the cardiovascular and neuromuscular systems, including the influence of physical training and nutrition, in both healthy and diseased states.
Areas of specific focus include human performance, clinical exercise physiology, metabolic regulation, exercise rehabilitation, neuromuscular disorders, cardiovascular function, stem cell biology, aging and sarcopenia.
Research methods and techniques include the application cellular and molecular analyses of biological tissue samples, stable isotope tracer technology, Doppler ultrasound, histochemistry, electrophysiology and metabolic measurements.
