The Human Cardiovascular Physiology Lab is located in the Department of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences at the University of Guelph and is led by Dr. Philip Millar. Our group focuses on understanding the integrative mechanisms which control muscle sympathetic outflow and the resultant effects on blood pressure regulation. We have interests in exercise and nutritional interventions as therapeutic strategies to target increased sympathetic activity characteristic of many cardiovascular disease states.
We are also actively involved in training the next generation of leading scientists with opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral trainees.
