The Ph.D. in Human Bioenergetics covers all aspects of Health and Exercise Science. While it primarily prepares students for academic and research careers, it is also amenable to careers outside academia (e.g. public health, research foundations, footwear/equipment, pharmaceutical, or nutrition industries) that require advanced training in research. The program trains professionals in basic and applied research centered around preventing age-related decline in human health and function, understanding the pathophysiology of disease and disability, as well as designing and testing novel countermeasures and maximizing functional performance in first responders, soldiers, and athletes.
