Research Focus

Dr. Limberg is interested in mechanisms that contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease in obese individuals and interventions that can reverse and/or prevent cardiovascular disease risk. Dr. Limberg is currently studying how blood flow and blood pressure are modulated by the nervous system in human obesity and related conditions, the effect of pharmacological and non-pharmacological (e.g. exercise) interventions, and how these factors may differ between men and women.

Specific areas of interest include:

  • Mechanisms of sympathoexcitation in human obesity
  • Neural control of blood flow and blood pressure
  • Effect of exercise in neurovascular control
  • Sex differences in cardiovascular regulation
