Research

Dr. DeLorey’s research interests focus on the neural control of the cardiovascular system and rest and in response to acute and chronic exercise in health and disease. 

A major component of the research program is investigation of the mechanistic effects of chronic endurance exercise training on sympathetic nervous system mediated control of blood pressure and skeletal muscle blood flow at rest and during exercise. The effects of sex, aging and nutritional interventions on the neural reflex control of the cardiovascular system are also of specific interest. The research program utilizes both human and rodent (in vivo and in vitro) experimental models.

Courses

KIN 200 - Physiology of Exercise

An introduction to acute physiological responses to exercise and chronic adaptations to training. Prerequisite: KIN 101. Note: Credit will be granted for only one of KIN 200 or PEDS 200.

Fall Term 2020
KIN 413 - Cardiopulmonary Exercise Physiology

This course focuses on the functions, control and integration of the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems. It is designed to increase the student's knowledge of regulation and integration of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems in health and disease. Responses and adaptations to acute and chronic exercise will be used as a foundation upon which the concepts of control and integration will be explored. Clinical applications (e.g. exercise, high altitude) and pathophysiology (e.g. type 2 diabetes, heart disease) will be reviewed. Prerequisite: KIN 200. Note: Credit will be granted for only one of KIN 413 or PEDS 413.

Winter Term 2021
KSR 511 - Exercise Testing and Exercise Prescription

The theory and practice of exercise tests, interpretation, and exercise prescription for selected populations. Note: Credit will be granted for only one of KSR 511, KIN 511 or PEDS 511.

Winter Term 2021
KSR 513 - Cardiopulmonary Exercise Physiology

This course focuses on the functions, control and integration of the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems. It is designed to increase the student's knowledge of regulation and integration of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems in health and disease. Responses and adaptations to acute and chronic exercise will be used as a foundation upon which the concepts of control and integration will be explored. Clinical applications (e.g., exercise, high altitude) and pathophysiology (e.g., Type 2 diabetes, heart disease) will be reviewed. Prerequisite: KIN 200. This course may not be taken for credit if credit has already been obtained for KIN 413. Note: Credit will be granted for only one of KSR 513, KIN 513 or PEDS 513.
