Research Team

Shilpa Dogra

Research in our laboratory currently focuses on active aging and exercise for adults with asthma. We have state-of-the-art equipment to measure physiological changes in response to exercise, and collaborate with colleagues across campus to answer novel research questions. 

If you are interested in joining the team, please contact me for information on current opportunities.
