  • Virginia Military Institute - PE Professors Train for New Research Project
    a medical clinic explained Col Holly Richardson professor of physical education The beauty of this is that it s noninvasive This year the salivary biomarkers research lab will be located in Cocke Hall while Cormack Hall is undergoing renovation The lab along with the other facilities and equipment supporting the exercise science minor will move into Cormack Hall in time for the 2015 16 academic year Funding for lab equipment has come in the form of a 17 000 grant from the Jackson Hope Fund The original plans for an exercise science minor at VMI didn t include salivary marker research but when Richardson read an article about it she realized that such an initiative would be serendipitous to the minor which was first offered in the 2013 14 academic year As her interest grew Richardson quickly recruited two other VMI faculty members to join her Capt Daniel Jaffe an instructor in the physical education department and Capt Deanne Moosman who has previously taught in the biology department but is switching to the physical education department this year In early April the three traveled to Tempe Ariz to attend Spit Camp I at the Institute for interdisciplinary Salivary Biomarker Research at Arizona State University At the two day camp the three faculty members learned about saliva collection methods including passive drool and cheek swabs as well as the numerous insights into an individual s health that a salivary sample can provide According to Moosman salivary fluid can potentially measure approximately 1 000 indicators of health but there are tests currently available for only 20 to 30 of those biomarkers among them cortisol a stress hormone and alpha amylase a digestive enzyme At VMI goals for the salivary biomarker research lab include measurement of cadet stress Ideally the results gleaned from that work would be used to find better ways of managing cadet life Anecdotally stress is everywhere at VMI Richardson noted but so far all of the ways to measure stress are subjective rather than objective Can we measure stress in an objective way she asked As one of the first salivary biomarkers projects Richardson is interested in exploring the onset of the barracks plague that causes large groups of cadets to become ill at certain times of year Noting that there appears to be a slope of degradation of the immune system Richardson said that a salivary test could likely detect falling levels of immunoglobulin A an antibody crucial to maintaining a healthy immune system Knowing when levels of that antibody typically fall might prompt a change in the timing of some events such as Rat Challenge and field training exercises to better protect cadets health In addition to possible schedule changes with increased and more objective insight into the physiological effect of stress on the body Richardson noted We can better understand from multiple viewpoints that cadet experience and then either better prepare them or start teaching coping strategies A more distant goal perhaps timed for the 2015

  • Exercise Science Research Looks at Benefits of Supplements
    Spencer Buettner 15 a biology major who is working in conjunction with Capt Daniel Jaffe a physical education instructor on the project Why not do a study on something you think is the right one If it does work now I have something to give Funded by the Dr Fred C Swope Summer Scholars Program the project will serve as Buettner s capstone project and as the topic of Jaffe s doctoral dissertation It will focus on the effects of the supplement beta alanine a naturally occurring substance that can be synthesized by the human body Beta alanine is an amino acid amino acids are the building blocks of protein and as such it is also regularly consumed as a proponent of protein rich foods such as meat and eggs Buettner and Jaffe will be concentrating on different outcomes with the cadet exploring the possibility that the substance may help with performance on the VFT and the professor trying to determine if beta alanine can be beneficial in strength training The idea stemmed from an article concluding that beta alanine had no benefit in a military setting but Jaffe took issue with the methodology They basically said it was a worthless supplement for individuals such as the cadets here Jaffe said The biggest problem I had with that particular article was that with all of their research none of it used an environment such as this They used sedentary individuals non trained college students and they made these sweeping claims I d like to test their theory Now that they have approval to conduct the first research project involving humans at VMI in nearly a decade Buettner and Jaffe have begun assembling their subjects After three days of initial testing which includes strength testing the VFT and cardiovascular capacity half

  • Virginia Military Institute - New First-Year Course Teaches Wellness
    developing the mind and the body said Col James Coale head of physical education Getting this experience early on in their cadetships helps the rats understand a lot of what they re going through The course gives new cadets a new perspective on the physical and mental rigors of the Rat Line There s so much going on at VMI said Coale The stress can eat you up and how you interpret and respond to it as a rat is important Throughout the semester cadets in the class work on a behavior change project in which they target an area of life to improve and keep a log to track their progress A lot of cadets benefited from that project said Lt Col Mike Krackow associate professor of physical education in his first year at VMI I had students work on exercise nutrition time management and sleeping habits Many saw positive changes throughout the semester In order to encourage participation and engagement class sizes are kept small with a maximum of 20 students per section To accommodate the entire rat class 13 sections were offered in the fall and 11 are being taught this spring by several members of the department s faculty I make the course as interactive as possible said Krackow We re taking the knowledge and skills and tying them into the mindset of VMI relating them to everything that they have going on Since cadets are required to maintain a high level of fitness while at the Institute the course focuses on why this fitness is important and how cadets can integrate fitness into their lives after VMI Not only are members of the Corps physically fit but they understand the role that fitness and nutrition play in their quality of life said Coale and they
