Research

Research

The Physical Activity and Health program faculty conduct a variety of research in each of their laboratories. They study anything from what makes you motivated to exercise, to the affects of whey protein on the body, to what part of the brain is activated when you perform a task. Many of the faculty have an “open door” policy where you can be involved and get hands-on experience.
