The research goals of the Exercise Physiology and Biochemistry Laboratory are to determine:
- 1) important changes in physiological function with aging;
- 2) modulation of those changes by biological factors (e.g., adiposity, vitamin D) and lifestyle behaviors (e.g., physical activity and fitness);
- 3) the efficacy of exercise interventions for reversing adverse changes in physiological function and cognitive declines with aging; and
- 4) the integrative (systemic to molecular) biological mechanisms that mediate physiological and cognitive changes with aging and the effects of modulating influences and interventions on those changes.
We employ a wide range of contemporary experimental techniques to study these issues in human subjects and rodents in cross-sectional, intervention, and longitudinal study designs. Emphasis is placed on the integrative nature of the physiological and pathophysiological processes involved from a mechanistic perspective.
The laboratory is supported by research grants from the National Research Foundation (NRF) of Korea.
