The Carlson Laboratory is literally Research Full Throttle

No matter what the sport or activity, or whether a weekend warrior or elite athlete, our goal is to bridge the gap between the research lab to the field, court, or track. We want to take the scientific content and provide educational information regarding health, safety, and contemporary training and competition.

Our focus includes a broad range of areas from molecular and cellular signaling mechanisms following exercise, to strength and conditioning, to the thermoregulatory and physiological responses of motorsports athletes during competitive racing. 

Some say we think outside the box. At the Carlson Laboratory, we believe there is no box.
