The Bionutrition Unit, including Body Composition and Exercise Lab, is available for investigators interested in conducting well-controlled human feeding studies, assessing body composition, and conducting exercise tests on various populations. The unit is staffed by an experienced, technically skilled research dietitian with expertise in exercise studies. The unit consists of a full-scale Metabolic Kitchen providing experimental research diets for both inpatient and outpatient studies.

The unit also provides support for protocol development, food compositing, food record analysis, dietary data management, and technical support. The Body Composition Lab is available for objective determination of energy expenditure, body fat percentage, extracellular/intracellular fluid volume, and VO2 max and anaerobic threshold measurements. The suite is equipped with a Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) machine, a metabolic cart, and two bioimpedance analysis systems. Anthropometry is available as well.
