Lynn Marshall


The Marshall Center, led by Lynn Marshall, Sc.D., conducts research on factors that raise risk or give protection from adverse health outcomes in human populations. Dr. Marshall has a strong focus on quantitative methods applicable to research on many different types of chronic disease. 

The center focuses on:

  • Conditions of aging in older men, including bone metabolism, change in body composition, changes in muscle mass and strength, physical functioning, falls and lower urinary tract symptoms
  • Orthopaedic spine conditions associated with low back pain
  • Measurement of biologic phenomena, including assays and body composition imaging

The Marshall Center is collaborative, involving not only epidemiologic methods and statistical analysis but also disciplines that guide investigation of biologic mechanisms and clinical relevance.
