​​The researchers in the exercise physiology laboratory use human, rodent, and cell culture study models to understand how various exercise and nutritional interventions affect disease states, exercise performance, inflammation, and the aging process. Recent studies have examined how certain proteins regulate glucose uptake in muscle cells, and aging rats; and the role of exercise in improving glucose uptake among obese humans. Other work in the laboratory includes understanding how exercise induced hyperthermia affects markers of inflammation and tissue damage in humans. Researchers have also examined various high intensity training modalities to improve exercise performance among athletic populations.​
