Primary fields of research

The primary research activities are realted to individual differences in human physiology.

One central theme is optimizing and developing methods for individual monitoring of athletes. The aim is to fight doping and optimize training outcome. 

Another central theme is the interaction between genes, environment and physiology. The aim is to identify genes with impact on human adaptability to physical training and regulation of physiological processes.

Additionally, research related to understanding of exercise induced fatigue in humans is conducted.
