The Exercise Physiology Core Laboratory

The Exercise Physiology Core Laboratory (EPCL) in The School of Medicine at The University of Virginia was established in 1990 to promote the expansion and enhancement of clinical research that incorporates exercise physiology and body composition into research questions.  We offer measures of resting and exercise oxygen consumption, lactate threshold assessment, endothelial function, regional distribution of body fat, body composition assessment, anthropometry, and the use of acute exercise and/or exercise training as an intervention. The EPCL team:    Antonio Abbate, MD, Ph.D, Medical Director; Art Weltman, Ph.D, Faculty Director; Lisa Farr, M.Ed., Director; Shannon Wells, M.Ed., Exercise Physiologist
