The Women’s Health and Exercise Laboratory (WHEL) is directed by Christina M. Dieli-Conwright, who received her Ph.D. in 2009 from the University of Southern California. We conduct research spanning the spectrum from basic to clinical and translational science with a concentration on cardiometabolic risk factors and obesity in cancer survivors. We are focused on studying the effects of cancer diagnosis and treatment on changes in body composition and metabolic dysregulation, and further, how clinical exercise interventions may improve metabolic disease risk and cancer prognosis. Additionally,the WHEL focuses on improving women’s health by investigating hormone-related factors associated with cancer risk, menstrual dysfunction, osteoporosis and sarcopenia.
