Description of research activities: Dr. Biggerstaff's laboratory is currently investigating the ability of exercise to improve plasma lipoprotein-cholesterol concentrations, which may decrease risk for cardiovascular disease.  He is interested in the "volume" (caloric expenditure) and type of exercise that is necessary to promote improvements.  He is currently planning to begin assess changes in lipoprotein particle size as a result of exercise.  Having more small, dense lipoprotein particles increases risk for cardiovascular disease and exercise may promote increased lipoprotein particle size.
Keywords: Exercise, lipoprotein, cholesterol
