Dr. Ganio is currently investigating the mechanisms by which cardiovascular and thermoregulatory responses may be altered in healthy and patient populations. Specifically, his interests are the clinical implications of obesity on cardiovascular (e.g., arterial stiffness) and thermoregulatory (i.e., sweating and skin blood flow) responses during stresses such as heat and dehydration. He is also investigating how fluid intake needs may differ with different populations and settings.
