Research/Areas of Interest

Our laboratory has two primary research interests. First, we focus on investigating mechanisms behind cancer treatment related toxicities with a specific interest in skeletal muscle weakness and fatigue and how exercise and nutritional interventions play a part in battling this debilitating side effect.

Our second research interest is centered on physical activity levels of transgender individuals and the role that physical activity plays in mental and physical health.
