Welcome to the Clinical Physiology Website. Our research experiments focus on understanding how physical forces and changes in cell or tissue mechanics contribute to our development, physiology, and disease. Of particular interest is the environment of microgravity. How much influence do external forces have on our well-being and function? As we explore outer space, we are just beginning to realize how reliant our health is upon normal hydrostatic forces and cyclic loading on our inner space. While we advance our understanding of space, the final frontier, we are discovernig more about our inner space, our body’s ability to adapt over time to simple mechanical loading and unloading here on Earth. This has profound implications for improving medical treatments and maintining human health wherever our hearts and minds lead us.
