CARE Lab

Welcome to the CArdiovascular Research and Exercise (CARE) Lab at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The CARE Lab is part of the Department of Physical Therapy at UNLV. Our research in the CARE Lab focuses on how the body responds to exercise. Our main interests are the regulation of heart rate and blood pressure, and the structure and function of the heart and the vascular system. We investigate the immediate response to different tasks like standing up, and the long term adaptations that occur with exercise programs. We use state-of-the-art equipment and non-invasive research methods, which are both high-quality and participant-friendly.
