Symposia V: Cardiovascular Benefits of Exercise: Insights from Animal Studies
Speakers will address emerging research on connections between exercise and arrhythmia, adaptation to physical activity, and molecular mechanisms of cardioprotection.
Symposia VI: Cardiovascular Benefits of Exercise: Insights from Human Studies
The session will cover improving exercise tolerance in heart failure, reversal of impaired cardiac function in obese adolescents, the effect of exercise on left ventricular compliance and diastolic function in the elderly and attenuating premature cardiovascular aging in Type 2 diabetes through exercise.
Symposia VII: Fit, Fat and Lean Liver: Exercise Adaptations in Non-Traditional Tissues
Speakers will discuss the mechanism by which exercise can prevent or reverse steatosis, the effects of exercise on IL-6 production, and the control of adipose tissue metabolism, adipose tissue oxidation and metabolism.
Symposia VIII: Skeletal Muscle Lipid Droplet Biology in Exercise and Disease
Experts will present findings on liquid droplet dynamics in fat accumulation and metabolic regulation.
