Grant: Dharini Bhammar
Dharini Bhammar (Kinesiology and Nutrition Sciences) is a co-investigator on a five-year, $2.7 million RO1 grant from the National Institutes of Health to examine whether overweight children have more breathing limitations, intolerance for exercise, and breathlessness when exercising compared to normal-weight children, leading to possible misdiagnoses for conditions such as asthma.
The project will be conducted at the Institute of Exercise and Environmental Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, a joint program of University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Texas Health Resources. Preliminary data has been published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise and presented during the annual international meetings of Experimental Biology and the American College of Sports Medicine.
