Why study Exercise Medicine?

Disease risks associated with chronic physical inactivity are widespread. Exercise training induces a complex array of coordinated cellular and molecular processes that improve symptoms and co-morbidities associated with numerous chronic conditions including musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory, metabolic, immunologic, and neurologic disorders. Understanding the mechanisms underlying exercise-induced adaptations and their clinical utility in disease prevention and treatment is therefore a truly interdisciplinary effort.

If you are interested in any aspect of exercise biology and medicine, this club is a great opportunity for you to gain insight into the field!

Journal Club highlights:

  • In UCEM’s Exercise Medicine journal club, participants will interact with scientists and clinicians from several disciplines.

  • Discussions will highlight the latest and most impactful exercise-based research in both human and animal model systems.

  • Each month, one journal club topic will also relate to the monthly UCEM Distinguished Lecture Series spanning molecular, biological, clinical, and behavioral research.

Interested in being a part of the club?

  • UAB Graduate students looking to register for the course can register here. Post-doctoral students who don't require anymore course credits are also encouraged to sign up via UAB Canvas.

  • Not a student? Email the journal club director Matthew Alexander, PhD at malexander@peds.uab.edu if you would like to present or event coordinator Purnima Janarthanan at kjpurni@uab.edu if you would like to only attend the sessions.
