Research Profile

Christian McLaren’s research primarily focuses on aging, non-invasive interventions, lifestyle factors, diabetes, and obesity. He has contributed to several studies related to the effects of time-restricted feeding, adherence to dietary interventions in older adults, geroscience innovations, intermittent fasting in middle-age and older adults, the application of social cognitive theory in weight management, cardiovascular responses to exercise in older adults with knee osteoarthritis, vitamin D supplementation, and minimally invasive methods to assess fuel utilization and circadian rhythms in older adults. His work encompasses various aspects of aging research and lifestyle interventions, contributing to our understanding of how these factors impact the health and well-being of older adults.

Areas of Interest
  • Adherence to medical regimens
  • Aging
  • Exercise & Lifestyle Interventions
