Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 1, 2013
End Date: Apr 30, 2015
To develop biomedical models of human physiology and energy metabolism which provide quantitative estimates of individual fuel use and current status of fuel stores over prolonged periods of time from real-time ambulatory sensor data collected on free-living individuals.
Both parties are involved in independent research projects which are examining the relationship of specific metabolic parameters to individual fuel use and current status of fuel stores in free living humans. The Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center will perform human calorimetry experiments and collect additional real-time physiological data. The Collaborator will develop mathematical models to predict fuel use, fuel stores and physiological status. Together, these data will help to predict the water and metabolic fuel requirements of physically active humans.
