Research activities at MoB
The research activities at MoB examines musculoskeletal, neural and cellular aspects related to
- Physical activity and health,
- Muscle function in relation to the muscle’s phenotype, contractility, metabolism, gene expression, and intracellular signalling mechanisms,
- Exercise, inactivity and immobilisation, fatigue, overload in the muscular system and tendons, ageing, muscle and joint diseases,
- Development and validation of physical capacity and exercise implementation within specific sport disciplines and ranging from elite athletes to non-elite individuals.
The listed research areas are examined in projects that often combine basic research and more application-oriented clinical and sport scientific aspects. A major part MoB's research activities are directed into studying mechanisms related to the health promoting effects of physical exercise.
MoB participates in a large number of research projects that involve close cooperation with intern and extern national and international collaborators. Research activities are placed in the field of integrated experimental physiology, and the accomplished studies typically have both application-oriented and clinical relevance.
