Clinical Exercise Research Center

  • The mission of the Clinical Exercise Research Center is to promote health and rehabilitation using exercise as a stimulus to elucidate the mechanisms and define adjunctive therapy by which people will optimally adapt, heal, and overcome debilitating disease or injury.

    Investigations include:    

    • Hormones and the influence on body composition, muscle strength, metabolism, and rehabilitation 
    • Resistance training studies to improve strength and physical function in at risk populations, including cancer patients 
    • Studies using skeletal muscle biopsy tissue to understand myogenic regulators 
    • Human skeletal muscle cell culture experiment 
    • Determining physiological limits, fatigue, and overtraining elite athletes

    Ongoing Studies:
