2011 Seminar on Exercise in Medicine

Cardiac Exercise Research GroupUnsure of what you’re doing on December 14-15th? Not anymore! CERG is hosting its 4th Seminar on Exercise in Medicine in Trondheim, and registration is now open. In the past, these seminars have been a great success, and with big-name speakers and chairs such as Claude Bouchard, Steven Britton and Bengt Saltin coming this year, and a limited number of spaces, you should sign up soon to be sure that you won’t miss out on this year’s research happening!

Part of the success of our Exercise in Medicine seminars is that they bring together leading researchers in the fields of cardiology and exercise in a more intimate setting than large international conferences. This allows for a closer interaction, and we hope this year’s seminar will spark exciting new projects and ideas for further collaboration.

 The program’s six scientific sessions will cover a broad variety of topics, from clinical research and epidemiological studies, to basic mechanisms of cardiac function and exercise physiology. You can look forwards to talks like Prognostic and diagnostic value of cardiovascular biomarkers (Torbjørn Omland), Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction – a growing epidemic or “The Emperor’s New Clothes?” (Burkert Pieske), The paradox of oxidative stress and exercise with advancing age (Russell Richardson) and The sarcoplasmic reticulum and arrhythmogenic calcium release (David Eisner).

Please see the seminar website for more information and the complete program.

About CERG

The Cardiac Exercise Research Group (CERG) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) seeks to identify the key mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of physical on cardiac health in the context of disease prevention and treatment. Named the K.G. Jebsen Center for Exercise in Medicine under Professor Ulrik Wisløff's leadership in 2011, CERG uses both top-down and bottom-up approaches to combat lifestyle-related disease.
