My research focus is in the general area of Exercise as Medicine. My specific health-related research aims have been targeted toward the study of the effects of exercise on blood lipid metabolism, and on other accepted heart and cardiovascular disease risk factors in men and women, young and old. Current research in exercise physiology is focused on the adaptive response of the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal system to exercise, nutrition, and physical training using aquatic, endurance, and resistance modalities of exercise. In progress are research projects in sports physiology to profile elite athletes and study factors that contribute to the health of athletes, including nutritional supplements.
