Research Interests

Dr. Patricia Doyle-Baker, Dr.PH/PhD, does research that involves clinical exercise physiology, epidemiology and sport science. These three fields of study come together in her role as a doctor of Public Health. The Doyle-Baker research group uses blood markers (hormones) metabolic parameters, (bone mineral density, bone content, lean body and fat free mass) and physiological profiles (exercise and activity based), to provide evidence towards population based outcomes. The lab's collaborations spread across several disciplines including: medicine, health promotion, environmental design, and athletic populations. These rich experiences provide the lab with a wealth of information which allows them to translate knowledge (which they are very passionate about) and impact audiences through speaking and writing.

Her areas of research are within these research themes in the Faculty of Kinesiology:

- Movement Science and Musculoskeletal Health

- Injury Prevention, Sport Medicine and Rehabilitation

- Exercise Physiology and Nutrition in Health and Sport
