Human Vascular Physiology Laboratory


The Human Vascular Physiology Laboratory has two primary research themes:

  1. To investigate how the human vascular system adjusts and adapts to exercise and environmental stress in healthy and diseased populations.
  2. To explore the vascular and functional maladaptations that accompany various conditions and diseases (e.g. hypertension, aging, peripheral arterial disease) and to identifying novel therapies or interventions that may mitigate such deleterious changes.

Our work is funded by the National Institutes of Health and the American Heart Association. Our external collaborators include: UT Southwestern Medical Center, Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine, and the Montreal Heart Institute. UNTHSC collaborators include: the Tune Lab, the R. Cunningham Lab, Department of Surgery, and the Center for Geriatrics.
