The doctoral program in Human Bioenergetics from Colorado State University offers a multidisciplinary approach to the study of energy, exploring in depth how energy is transferred within the body. 


While it primarily prepares students for academic and research careers, it is also amenable to careers outside academia (e.g. public health, research foundations, footwear/equipment, pharmaceutical, or nutrition industries) that require advanced training in research. 

The Human Bioenergetics program from Colorado State University trains professionals in basic and applied research centered around preventing age-related decline in human health and function, understanding the pathophysiology of disease and disability, as well as designing and testing novel countermeasures and maximizing functional performance in first responders, soldiers, and athletes.

The research looks at the progression of energy as food is converted into power and seek to understand how that power affects human health throughout the lifespan. We explore the effect that power has on anatomical function, from top athletes to those affected by aging and chronic diseases. In our Ph.D. programs you will work directly with our lab investigators in cutting edge research and assist in a variety of studies and departmental functions, making you an integral part of our HES team.
