Dr. Hargens and The Clinical Physiology Lab collaborate with leading investigators here at UCSD and around the world.
Several of our personnel have come to us through scientific advancement programs such as the Step Up program with NIH
and Frontiers in Physiology with The American Physiological Society. We explore the effects of environmental changes
(pressure, body position, hydrostatic forces, etc.) on fluid and pressure distribution, biomechanical adaptation, sports fitness
and rehabilitation as well as cardiovascular health. Our weekly lab meetings take place every Thursday at 9:00 am at the
ACTRI conference room (L2W 502). We also have a monthly journal club
meeting at which we discuss important works in physiological research.
As part of the Orthopaedic Surgery department, members of the lab also
participate in the weekly Monday morning orthopaedic conferences held in the
main ACTRI auditorium. Presentations from visiting professors, graduate students
and other experts in the orthopaedic related fields are given and discussed. If you
are interested in working with the lab, please feel free to contact Dr. Hargens and
let him know a little about your background and interests and availability to work at
