Research Description

Dr. Rynders’ current research is focused on studying the effects of exercise and diet on circadian rhythms and energy metabolism during sleep.

As a Ludeman Family Center for Women's Health Research researcher, Dr. Rynders examined sex differences in the effects of aerobic exercise on fat utilization during sleep. His study laid the groundwork for investigating factors that upregulate or downregulate the ability to release fat from storage depots during sleep in women compared to men, and provided insight into why weight loss through exercise differs between women and men.
