The Integrative Physiology Laboratory (IPL) concentrates on health-related research across several disciplines using translational approaches that are both cellular and whole-body in scope. The current faculty’s research integrates aspects of cardiovascular function, metabolism, inflammation, hydration and nutrition status, and exercise/physical activity. We evaluate healthy individuals, as well as at-risk populations or those who suffer from chronic diseases, including hypertension, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease, and obesity. The IPL utilizes state-of-the-art applied and basic techniques to accomplish its research goals.
