The UCLA Exercise Physiology Research Laboratory (EPRL) was established in 1993 to promote the discipline of exercise physiology in research and teaching at the UCLA campus. The laboratory is housed in one of the premiere medical schools in the world and provides a foundation for teaching exercise physiology to undergraduates, graduate, medical and dental students and postgraduate fellows.
The EPRL is unique at UCLA in its focus on applied exercise physiology conducting human research. The lab promotes a prevention model of wellness, focused on forestalling disease development through the enhancement of health and fitness practices in individuals. Additionally, the research conducted in the EPRL analyzes cutting edge technology with an aim of improving performance in fitness enthusiasts and athletes alike.
The EPRL has an important relationship with the John Wooden Center at UCLA offering performance exercise testing for students and athletes, and international collaborations with other institutions such as the Sports and Exercise Medicine Unit at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, England.
