Clinical Exercise Physiology Laboratory

The Clinical Exercise Physiology Laboratory is a research-focused lab located in the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute in the Masonic Memorial building. Our research interests lie in lung fluid regulation in health and in various disease states including heart failure and cystic fibrosis. We are particularly interested in how common genetic variants in the lung fluid clearance pathway influence fluid regulation in response to physiological stimuli. CEPL is under the direction of Eric M. Snyder, Ph.D.
