understand the mechanisms by which both different intensities and
different types of exercise improve mitochondrial function in healthy,
overweight/obese and diseased populations.
to quantify the intensities of a variety of types of exercise across a range of skill and fitness levels
changes in both whole body fitness and mitochondrial function following
exercise training of differing types and intensities and how these
changes differ between active, sedentary, and overweight/obese young
the molecular mechanisms underlying exercise induced mitochondrial
biogenesis, specifically, to explore post-translational regulation of
PGC-1alpha following exercise
is hoped that this research will increase our knowledge surrounding the
optimal intensities and types of exercise required to improve health
and the underlying mechanisms of exercise induced health benefit.
