Applied Metabolism & Physiology Lab (AMP Lab)
The AMP Lab is designed to understand the intersection of metabolism and vascular physiology for health and well-being. Multiple assessments are made to understand primarily how insulin acts to regulate glucose and lipid metabolism. We have experience working on studies ranging from athletes to obesity, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, pulmonary hypertension, heart failure, cancer, concussion and Parkinson’s disease.
