Human Bioenergetics Laboratory
The overarching goal of the Human Bioenergetics Laboratory is to explore glucose, fat, and protein metabolism in healthy and disease states. Specifically, we focus on metabolic perturbations evident with exercise and disease and interactions between the two. Through exercise, nutritional, and pharmacological strategies, we utilize both human clinical and cellular laboratory-based approaches to address research questions at the level of the whole body down to the gene.
We are currently recruiting study subjects. To learn more, visit our the Human Bioenergetics Laboratory Studies page.
