Integrated Exercise Science Laboratory
The Integrated Exercise Science Laboratory is located on the first floor of Gatke Hall, the old Salem Post Office building. The space is used by no less than 9 separate courses each academic year, in addition to group research projects, senior research projects, and faculty research projects. The lab also hosts sessions of the Saturday Explorations outreach program for talented and gifted middle school students interested in science. Over the past few years we were successful in providing the equipment and resources that facilitated increased student learning, and student and faculty research productivity.
