Our work includes a number of active human studies and technology development projects. We are (1) developing methods for predicting breast cancer risk from breast density and tissue thickness; (2) predicting metabolic health status and disease risk using 3D Optical, X-ray, and magnetic resonance imaging; and (3) describing frailty and functional ability using advanced body composition analysis and strength assessments.

Labs & Services
The SRL provides a number of services for the general public and other researchers. Our Body Composition Lab is a core lab facility within the University of Hawai’i Cancer, covering areas in Body Composition, Exercise Physiology, and Energy Metabolism to provide accurate and precise measures of physiological biomarkers for research and self-assessment. We also share our data and code with other investigators interested in working with our findings. Finally, we provide quality assurance services to review, analyze, and assess the performance of various devices.
