Exercise Metabolism Lab

This facility allows researchers to examine physiological responses to exercise in hot and humid environments and to assess the role of hydration or other nutritional interventions on heat tolerance.

The main feature of this laboratory is the environmental testing chamber. The chamber is a 10x12 ft sealed room equipped to control both temperature and humidity during exercise. The chamber is able to regulate temperature within +1 degree up to about 110 degrees with relative humidity from 20% to 100%.
