About our Lab

In the Performance Nutrition and Body Composition Laboratory, we help individuals better understand their bodies, equipping them to make healthy lifestyle improvements. We assess body composition and resting metabolic rate, offering follow-up appointments to measure progress. Faculty in the Department of Dietetics and Human Nutrition oversee the lab with graduate and undergraduate students assisting with research studies and client testing. The lab offers state-of-the-art, research-grade body composition and resting energy expenditure testing. We have several ongoing research studies and also invite those in the community to take advantage of the BodPod and Quark RMR testing (fees associated, UK employee and student discounts).
