The goals of our laboratory/clinical-focused research are to: 1) identify the mechanisms of eccrine sweat gland and skin blood flow disorders to develop meaningful treatments; 2) quantify and model regional skin barriers and transdermal molecule movement during environmental exposures; and 3) determine the interactions of the thermal environment on medical conditions and worker health/safety.
The goals of our physiological education-focused research are to: 1) determine if function diagrams increase physiology knowledge recall; 2) identify the role of prediction in knowledge acquisition during physiology simulations; and 3) determine if incorporating lifespan and sex-specific differences impacts physiology knowledge retention in medical education.
