Dr. Collin Fehr and Dr. Clay Robinson conduct research in Kinesiology and Exercise Science.  Their most recent work includes a study examining the potential performance-enhancing effects of Bio-Electro-Magnetic-Energy-Regulation (BEMER).  By increasing blood flow, BEMER technology may be able to speed recovery time in athletes, leading to better performance in sport.  BEMER also has application in clinical populations where the hallmark of many disease states is poor blood flow.  Projects exploring these topics are ongoing in the Human Performance Laboratory at Lewis-Clark State College.

Eric Stoffregen

Dr. Stoffregen's lab uses Drosophila melanogaster, the common fruit fly, as a model for studying DNA replication and the biological importance of repetitive DNA sequences. His lab is currently investigating the role Blm DNA helicase plays in facilitating replication through repetitive DNA sequences and why Blm is essential for this function during the early development of Drosophila embryos. This research has implications for genetics, developmental biology, and evolutionary biology. You can find out more about his lab's research here.
