HIPL Lab 2016-17

Our focus is to understand the cardiovascular and metabolic consequences of aging and obesity and designing and testing interventions, which may reverse or ameliorate age and / or obesity-related sequalea.

HIPL has approximately 2500 square feet of dedicated facilities to conduct human integrative physiology research that also provide educational and training opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate trainees.
