Cardiovascular Nutrition Research Lab

The Cardiovascular Nutrition Laboratory focuses on assessing the interplay between diet and heart disease risk factors. The scope of this work ranges from human intervention studies to in vitro experiments. The primary aim of the Cardiovascular Nutrition Laboratory is to adjudicate the potential effect of dietary interventions on cardiovascular disease risk factors and expand our understanding of the underlying mechanisms with specific emphasis on post-menopausal women and older men.
