Effects of Chronic Exercise on Heart Cells
Following an independent study in the fall, Aki is in the midst of a semester-long project examining the effects of chronic exercise on heart cells. Coming to Penn with an interest in physiology, Aki considers the lab – led by highly regarded scientists – an integral part of his education. There, he works alongside nurse scientists, clinicians, epidemiologists, bioengineers, and statisticians.
“We have a convergence of disciplines bringing expertise and mentorship to the lab,” says Aki. “We all learn from and support each other.”
