LaVoy Research Group

Dr. LaVoy’s research focuses on understanding how acute and chronic exercise impacts the immune system, with a focus on harnessing the beneficial effects of exercise to manipulate immune responses.

Dr. LaVoy is interested in elucidating the mechanisms underlying changes in immune cells that have been observed following acute exercise, such as changes in lymphocyte function. She is also interested in using exercise to improve vaccine responses in older adults and to address cancer-related fatigue in cancer survivors.
