KIN 5720: Special Topics

Cellular and Molecular Exercise Physiology

Fall 2014 | MW 4:40-5:55 p.m. | 206 Cooke Hall

About the Course: Cellular and Molecular Exercise Physiology

This course emphasizes the cellular and molecular mechanisms in response to acute and chronic physical exercise. Biochemical pathways of regulating energy metabolism during exercise, change of gene expression as adaptation to altered diet, environmental factors and aging, and cellular oxidative-antioxidant homeostatsis will be the main foci. The course will expose the graduate student and advanced undergraduate student to current topics of biomedical issues affecting human health and wellbeing, modern techniques of exercise science research and important research articles in the literature.
