Muscle metabolism and E-C coupling – role in performance, fatigue and disease

Course description

The course program covers aspects related to regulation of muscle function at rest and during exercise, with emphasis on metabolic effects on excitation contraction (E-C) coupling. The course focuses on the integrated physiology responses to exercise and covers concepts and methods from the molecular level to organ systems and whole body levels in healthy individuals, elite athletes and clinical populations.

The main theme is the application of state of the art methods validating ion homeostasis and E-C coupling to specific evaluation of muscle function. The aim is to encourage the translation of knowledge gained in basic sciences to applied muscle function.

 

Expected learning outcomes

The aim is to encourage the translation of knowledge gained in basic sciences to applied muscle function and to foster student research networks. Further participants will gain hands on experience and discussions of state of the art methods evaluating muscle function and biomarkers of E-C coupling characteristics by experts in the field.
