Integrative Cardiovascular Physiology Lab

The Integrative Cardiovascular Physiology Lab aims to better understand the underlying factors that contribute to the disparities in the development of hypertension and cardiovascular disease across the lifespan. We are particularly interested in understanding the mechanisms of blood vessel function and dysfunction, and identifying intervention strategies to mitigate the development of vessel dysfunction and cardiovascular disease in vulnerable populations across the lifespan.

Current Research Studies

  • Role of mitochondria-derived oxidative stress on microvascular endothelial function in healthy non-Hispanic Black adults
  • Influence of Fitness and Vitamin D Status on Cardiovascular Function in Young Adults
  • Characterization of passive whole-body heat stress responses in adults differing in size and body mass
  • Effects of Type I Diabetes on Microvascular Function
