Cardiovascular Nutrition Research Laboratory

Research Focus

The research goals of the Cardiovascular Nutrition Research Lab are to determine:

  • the impact and interaction of dietary nutrients on cardiovascular health;
  • to investigate therapeutic interventions (i.e. individual dietary nutrients, antioxidants) to improve cardiovascular health; and
  • the impact of dietary nutrients on the gut microbiome.

We investigate cardiovascular health using several techniques of macrovascular and microvascular function. Our ultimate goal is advancing nutrition as one of the most important lifestyle factors that can help adults achieve an ideal cardiovascular health profile.
