Detecting and preventing cardiometabolic risk

We study ways in which diet, physical activity and aging modify one’s risk for common cardiometabolic conditions. Our lab focuses on detecting and mitigating risks for common and costly conditions including:


Technology and capabilities

The lab is equipped to measure an array of clinical outcomes related to human health.
  • Doppler ultrasound
  • DEXA body composition analysis
  • Bioelectrical impedance analysis
  • Accelerometry/physical activity tracking
  • Phlebotomy/blood collection
  • Metabolic risk factor panels
  • Resting metabolic rate
  • Maximal aerobic exercise (VO2max) testing
