Dr. Dylan Olver is an early career investigator at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, at the University of Saskatchewan. The primary focus of the lab is to determine the role of physical activity in the prevention and treatment of vaso-neuro related disorders (i.e., cognitive decline, decreased mobility, exercise intolerance etc.). Specifically, Dr. Olver’s research aims to: i) characterize the pathological features of vaso-neuro pathology and identify therapeutic biomarkers of disease prevention and treatment, ii) elucidate the mechanisms responsible for the protective effects of physical activity, and iii) develop exercise prescriptions targeted at improving specific vaso-neuro health outcomes. He believes firmly in the molecule-to-user approach, as such his work is conducted in healthy, preclinical and clinical human populations, in instrumented animals, as well as on isolated tissues (biopsies/blood vessels).
