Research Areas

Cardiovascular Physiology Group
Focus on heart and vascular function at the molecular, cellular, and systems levels, with applications to congenital heart disease, disease prevention, and drug design.

Chronic Disease Group
Multidisciplinary training in the prevention of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes, from individual physiology to the broader scope of community health and disease treatment.

Environmental Physiology Group
Integrative systems approach to understanding whole body human physiology as a function of changes in environmental conditions.

Neuromechanics Group
Integrates the fields of biomechanics and neurophysiology to understand human movement in health and disease, with applications to rehabilitation medicine, injury prevention, and aging.

Neuroscience Group
This group spans a spectrum ranging from the neurophysiology of motor control, to cellular properties of neurons and neuronal circuitry, to the pathophysiology of degenerative neurological diseases, to the molecular biophysics underlying membrane properties of neurons.
