The Research in Exercise and Cardiovascular Health (REACH) laboratory is comprised of dedicated students, researchers and volunteers from the community who work together to answer important questions about chronic disease and disability.
The REACH lab is focused on research that integrates three areas of study: cardiovascular physiology, brain aging, and stroke recovery. Exercise interventions are used to maximize heart and brain health in people with and without disease. Using non-invasive methods, the lab team studies the heart, lungs, brain, and vascular system.
