Human Bioenergetics (Ph.D.)


Our Ph.D. program in Human Bioenergetics offers a multidisciplinary approach to the study of energy, exploring in depth how energy is transferred within the body. We explore how the body regulates energy processes and how that energy influences overall health and wellness, with an emphasis on the study of energy transfer pathways. Our research looks at the progression of energy as food is converted into power and seek to understand how that power affects human health throughout the lifespan. We explore the effect that power has on anatomical function, from top athletes to those affected by aging and chronic diseases. In our Ph.D. programs you will work directly with our lab investigators in cutting edge research and assist in a variety of studies and departmental functions, making you an integral part of our HES team.
