Exercise Intervention and Outcomes
The Exercise Intervention & Outcomes core houses a wide variety of equipment that provides researchers with facilities in which they can:
- Evaluate clinical markers of health: height, weight, cardio-metabolic function, strength, and blood/biopsy generated measures.
- Complete participant characterization: strength, metabolic capacity, cardiac function, body composition (bone, fat, muscle) – including separation of visceral and subcutaneous abdominal fat
- Conduct exercise intervention studies in a controlled setting. Participants can be closely monitored to ensure compliance to ensure precision in dose/response measures.
- Evaluate a wide range of health-related biomarkers in the core or utilize other IALS Cores for additional characterization
