Dr. Byrne is very interested in metabolism as it relates to human health and performance. She has been involved in various studies investigating the impact of carbohydrates and/or protein on various aspects of performance, including the ingestion of raisins as a pre-exercise nutritional snack.
Students involved in research with Dr. Byrne have most recently investigated 1) the role of carbohydrate or protein supplementation on recovery from muscle damaging exercise and 2) the role of nutrition and exercise patterns on arterial stiffness and pulse wave velocity.
