Exercise Science

InCHIP’s research in exercise science, spearheaded largely by investigators from UConn’s top-ranked Kinesiology Department, has historically covered a broad range of topics such as: Exercise genomics, or the study of how genetic variation can mediate the effects of exercise on health outcomes; the effects of statins (a class of cholesterol-lowering drug) on muscle function; exercise interventions to reduce the frequency and severity of hazardous drinking episodes among college students, adults with alcohol disorders, and drug abusers; aftereffects of exercise on blood pressure and vascular function; effects of whey protein ingestion on the body’s response to resistance training; and more.
