Research Interest
Now that we have added "years to life," it is time to think about how to add life to those years."
John F. Kennedy, 1961 White House Conference on Aging

The Centers for Disease Control reports that in 2005, 1 out of every 2 adults has a chronic disease.  Furthermore, about 25% of the adults with a chronic disease have at least one limitation on their daily lives.  Recent evidence indicates that many of the recognized chronic diseases are associated with an imbalance of the immune system leading to a constant pro-inflammatory state.

The primary research interest of this laboratory  focuses on the effects of exercise and mind-body modalities (meditation, spirituality, religion, subtle energy, electromagnetic fields) on the modulation of the immune system for the prevention and intervention of chronic diseases; and the development of evidence-based wellness programs for children and adults so that can "add life to those years."
We are very appreciative of the support from the Alvin S. Levine Professorship that financial resources to pursue this project.
