About Daniel Freidenreich

My research focuses on dietary interventions and their impacts on metabolic disease, human performance and immune function. Within this concentration, my research agenda can be separated into a few related but diverse aims.

My first aim is to investigate how a low carbohydrate diet alters macronutrient metabolism and the downstream effects these alterations have on other metabolic processes that can lead to reductions in the risk factors for metabolic diseases such as overweight/obesity, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes as well as indicators of inflammation.

My second aim is to discern how a low carbohydrate diet alters metabolism during exercise and to elucidate the effects on athletic performance and immune function.

Finally I aim to discern the effects of resistance and cardiovascular exercise on markers of immune function and to dissect the communication network between immune cells after exercise to better understand the cascade of events that leads to recovery.
