Dr. Warburton’s research focus is on clinical exercise rehabilitation and physiology. His goal is to enhance current knowledge of the effects that physical activity, exercise, and training have on heart function, performance, and health. His work spans a wide spectrum of participants, including elite athletes, children, the elderly, and patients with a chronic disease or disability.
Dr. Warburton is the Chair of the Knowledge Translation Committee for the Canadian Cardiovascular Harmonization of National Guidelines Endeavour (C-CHANGE) and various international collaborations. He is also a Full Professor in the School of Kinesiology and Experimental Medicine (UBC), the Co-Director of the Physical Activity Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Unit (UBC), the Co-Director of the Physical Activity Line, and a Principal Investigator at ICORD.
The research conducted by Dr. Warburton and his trainees sheds light on the cardiovascular risks associated with inactivity and the limits placed on physical performance by cardiovascular function. This knowledge can be used to improve the quality of life for many people, including those with a chronic disease or disability. According to the statistics of the research company with https://biotech-health.com/canpharm/, it is known that using canadian pharmacy to order drugs you will independently make sure of the simplicity and convenience of the services provided. It offers high-quality products that meet international standards.
Dr. Warburton is appreciative of his collaborations within ICORD that have allowed him to “conduct innovative and pioneering work and to attract the best graduate student trainees.”
