Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Kathleen Sturgeon's research has focused on elucidating the mechanisms of exercise-induced protection against chronic diseases. It is well known that exercise is beneficial and that sedentary behavior is associated with many common chronic health problems. However, it is not well understood what molecular changes are induced by physical activity or how they improve the function of different tissues and organs in the body. Projects in the Sturgeon lab are vertically translational from animal models to clinical trials and community based programs and are also transdisciplinary across exercise physiology, cardiology, oncology and immunology.
