Center for Advancing Exercise and Nutrition Research on Aging

About CAENRA

Our goal is to investigate and determine effective exercise and nutritional interventions that can prevent and/or slow the progression of chronic diseases and functional declines associated with aging and sharing these findings into practical recommendations for clinicians and the general public.

Examples of projects conducted include the investigation of exercise and nutrition interventions for chronic conditions such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, cardiovascular diseases, sarcopenia and sarcopenic obesity, cancer, gastrointestinal health, and brain degenerative diseases.
