Dr. Coyle investigates the physiological factors that regulate human endurance performance. He has focused on the cardiovascular and metabolic factors that limit oxygen delivery and substrate utilization by exercising muscle. Furthermore, Dr. Coyle is interested in the physiological factors that influence maximal neuromuscular power. Dr. Coyle coordinates the graduate program in Sports Science & Nutrition and a number of these masters students advise the intercollegiate athletic teams at UT.

Research Interests and Expertise
Dr. Coyle has been investigating the physiological factors which limit human endurance performance. In addition to studying carbohydrate metabolism during exercise, he is attempting to determine the factors limiting fat mobilization and oxidation. Recent studies have been conducted to determine the influence of dehydration and fluid replacement on cardiovascular function and muscle metabolism during exercise. Dr. Coyle coordinates the graduate program in Sports Science & Nutrition.
