      Collapse Overview
      Dr. Dieli-Conwright’s research is focused on: 1) Determining underlying physiologic mechanisms causing cancer treatment-related weight gain/lossin cancer patients; 2) Designing and executing exercise interventions to improve co-morbid disease outcomes (i.e., diabetes, cardiovascular disease) in cancer survivors; and 3) Disseminating effective lifestyle interventions to cancer survivors to alleviate the presence of co-morbid diseases to improve survivorship. In addition to cancer research, Dr. Dieli-Conwright is interested in the effects of estrogen on skeletal muscle hypertrophy mechanisms in women.Dr. Dieli-Conwright teaches coursework related to systems physiology, general pathophysiology, and skeletal muscle physiology.
