The 4th Seminar on Exercise in Medicine, Trondheim, 14-15th December 2011Trondheim 17-18th December 2015
The 6 th
December 2015
Dear Colleagues and Friends:
It is a pleasure to invite you to “The 6 th
Seminar on Exercise in Medicine” in Trondheim the 17-18 th
of December
2015. The seminar is hosted by the K.G. Jebsen Center of Exercise in Medicine/Cardiac Exercise Research Group
( at the Department of Circulation and Medical Imaging, at Norwegian University of Science and
Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway.
This seminar brings together young and experienced researchers in the field of epidemiology, clinical cardiology,
exercise in medicine and basic mechanism of cardiovascular function. The main purpose is to discuss recent
progress in using exercise as medicine.
In contrast to the large international conferences, an intension by organizing this small seminar is to create an
informal and intimate setting, which we know set the stage for open discussions and brainstorming to create
new ideas for good research.
Thursday will be a very busy day from early morning to late night. The final program closes at 1630. You will have
some time to relax before departure for an outdoor dinner in the forest of Trondheim. Although this seem to be
stressful we promise that we will be taken good care of in a relaxing environment as soon as you have put on
your warmest clothes. We are hoping for nice cold weather with plenty of snow.
Friday we start up with program from the morning of and end the scientific session at 1515. For those of you that
are interested you will be invited to join a seminar called “Man in extreme environment” at 1900 on Friday night,
where you can relax and listen to some of the most experienced “nature explorers” in the world.
As organizers for this seminar we provide “the playing ground”, but it’s the players that make the game fun. We
are therefore deeply grateful if you would like to participate and share your time with us these days. We
welcome you to participate in this multidisciplinary setting.

The speakers
Steven Blair
Professor in the Departments of Exercise Science and Epidemiology and
Biostatistics at the Arnold School of Public Health, University of South
Carolina. His research focuses on the associations between lifestyle and
health, with a specific emphasis on exercise, physical fitness, body
composition, and chronic disease.
Lene Juel Rasmussen
Professor at the University of Copenhagen and Managing Director of the
interdisciplinary aging center, Center for Healthy Aging, residing within the
faculty of Health and Medical Sciences. Her research aims to unravel the
complex molecular basics of aging and the development of aging
associated diseases.
Maria Fiatarone Singh
Professor and a geriatrician, board certified in both Internal Medicine and
Geriatric Medicine in the USA and Australia, who has held the inaugural
John Sutton Chair of Exercise and Sport Science in the Faculty of Health
Sciences, and Professorship, Sydney Medical School, at the University of
Sydney since 1999. Her research, clinical, and teaching career has focused
on the integration of medicine, exercise physiology, and nutrition as a
means to improve health status and quality of life in older adults.
Jorge Ruas
Karolinska Institutet, and group leader for the Molecular and Cellular
Exercise Physiology research group. He received his Pharm.D. degree from
the University of Lisbon, his Ph.D. from Karolinska Institutet, and returned
