The Integrative Physiology Laboratory (IPL) concentrates on health-related research across several disciplines using translational approaches that are both cellular and whole-body in scope. Our faculty’s research integrates aspects of cardiovascular function, metabolism, inflammation, hydration and nutrition status, and exercise/physical activity. We evaluate healthy individuals, as well as at-risk populations or those who suffer from chronic diseases, including hypertension, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and obesity. We utilize state-of-the-art applied and basic techniques to accomplish our research goals.

  • Vision The Integrative Physiology Laboratory aspires to be leaders in research related to the understanding, prevention and treatment of chronic diseases.

  • Mission To conduct innovative, interdisciplinary and collaborative research aimed at promoting health across the lifespan. We support education, mentoring and professional development for students, fellows, faculty and staff. We also serve the UIC research community by providing state-of-the-art human cardiovascular and metabolic measurements.
