Bone Biology Laboratory

The HLKN Bone Biology Laboratory (BBL) is located in the contiguous rooms of the Old Heep Laboratory Building. The long-standing objective of the Bone Biology Laboratory is to understand the bone response to increased loading (exercise) or decreased loading (immobilization, microgravity) and to space radiation using an integrative physiology approach. Related lines of inquiry focus on nutritional (restricted caloric/ protein intake) and endocrine modifiers of the bone response to exercise and to simulated microgravity.

Child & Adolescent Health Research Lab

The Child & Adolescent Health Research Lab is a collaboration between the Department of Health and Kinesiology, the Texas A&M School of Public Health and the Department of Recreation, Park, and Tourism Sciences' Youth Development Program.
Initially founded at Indiana University in 2003 and then re-established at Texas A&M University in 2006, CAHRL’s mission is to have every child reach their optimal health by creating awareness of child and adolescent health issues through the achievement of four goals:

Child Motor Development Laboratory

The Lab is dedicated to the discovery, communication, and application of knowledge associated with physical growth and motor behavior of children.
Exploring the Cognitive Level of Action Processing

Exercise Genetics Laboratory

The Exercise Genetics Laboratory identifies biological mediators of adaptions to exercise training and elucidates the mechanistic basis for chronic disease associated with low levels of fitness. The lab uses the genetic/genomic approaches, quantitative trait (QTL) mapping and haplotype analysis, to investigate the genetic basis for individual variation in response to exercise training.

Exercise & Sport Nutrition Laboratory

The Exercise & Sports Nutrition Lab (ESNL) evaluates the interaction between exercise and nutrition on health, disease and human performance. The lab’s mission is to help disseminate research findings to the scientific and lay communities through research presentations, publications, media interviews and individual and group counseling.

Health Promotion and Genomics Lab

The Health Promotion and Genomics Lab focuses on the cutting-edge field of public health genomics. The lab’s mission is to train and engage health educators to maximize the benefits of genomic discoveries and minimize the potential harm to the lay public and underserved populations.

Human Countermeasures Laboratory

The purpose of HCL is the integrative study of nutritional and exercise countermeasures for the prevention and treatment of the effects of inactivity, aging and microgravity on musculoskeletal performance and disease. The lab’s approach is to identify environmental and genetic factors that contribute to inter-individual variability in muscle loss or variability in response to intervention.

Laboratory For Diversity In Sport

Laboratory for Diversity in Sport is part of the Center for Sport Management Research and Education and is dedicated to producing and disseminating research related to all forms of diversity within the sport and leisure context.

Laboratory For The Study Of Intercollegiate Athletics

The Laboratory for the Study of Intercollegiate Athletics (LSIA) is an interdisciplinary research and training laboratory that examines major concepts and issues related to the management and conduct of all levels of intercollegiate athletics.

Office of Digital Learning Technologies

The Office of Digital Learning Technologies (DLT) develops and delivers the online courses and programs offered through HLKN. The office employs a team of staff, graduate assistants, and student workers to ensure the best possible learning experience for students enrolled in its courses.
The DLT provides instructional design recommendations to faculty and multimedia production of learning content, and builds the courses within the learning management systems used by HLKN.
