Dr. Zuhl's recent research includes identifying and developing progressive exercise therapies for various clinical populations. This includes patients enrolled in cardiac rehabilitation programs; and, more recently those suffering from various behavioral disorders (e.g., substance use disorders, mood disorders). He has additional research experience in examining the physiological stress response to physical exertion (e.g. exercise) in various environmental conditions.
