The Ph.D. in Human Bioenergetics prepares students for academic and research careers. The program trains professionals in basic and applied research addressing important aspects of human health and disease, human performance, and human aging. Students will be equipped to serve the state and the nation in a variety of capacities such as basic and applied research scientists in academic, industrial, and public health settings.
Human Bioenergetics is the multidisciplinary study of how energy is transferred in cells, tissues and organisms. The manner in which the body regulates energy transfer pathways and processes has a fundamental influence on health. These processes convert food into energy and relate directly to human health across the lifespan and the spectrum of functional capacities from chronic disease to elite athletic performance.
