For important updates on Lindenwood University campus safety precautions and associated information from public health officials, please visit our Roaring Return page and the CDC's COVID-19 site.

Researchers within the Exercise and Performance Nutrition Laboratory regularly perform body composition and other forms of physical assessment found within the laboratory. These activities are coordinated with the EPNL staff to help LU athletes, athletic performance coaches, athletic trainers and sport coaches have access to meaningful information to help maximize each athlete’s health and recovery.  In addition, researchers within the EPNL have partnered with various teams to complete a wide variety of research investigations, which again, can aid in performance while also advancing our scientific knowledge of what is being studied.  Examples of such research partnerships between the EPNL and LU Athletics are:

  • Changes in Energy Expenditure, Dietary Intake and Energy Availability Across an Entire Collegiate Women’s Lacrosse Season
  • Impact of Beta-Alanine Supplementation on Strength and Power Performance of Collegiate Rugby Athletes
  • Changes in Energy Expenditure, Dietary Intake and Energy Availability Across an Entire Collegiate Women’s Basketball Season
  • Effects of Rapid Weight Loss and Dehydration on Performance of Female Collegiate Wrestlers
  • Genetic Influences on Sport Performance and Athlete Health: ACTN3, R577X and APOE Polymorphisms in Highly Trained NCAA Athletes
