The 2017 Saltin International Graduate Course in Exercise & Clinical Physiology, a 4-Day Intensive Advanced Graduate-Level Course, wrapped up September 21st in Ottawa. With nearly 40 students from universities across the globe, the course focused on the integrated physiological responses to exercise and covered concepts and methods from the molecular level to organ system and whole body levels in healthy individuals and clinical populations.
Bengt Saltin (1935-2014) was an eminent physiologist and educator whose work contributed significantly to advancing the understanding of muscle metabolism, the regulation of circulation and the mechanisms underlying the adaptation to exercise training. This course has been named in his honor and follows in the footsteps of similar intensive graduate training courses in Scandinavia and Canada. The course is taught by a number of internationally recognized Canadian and Danish scholars who will participate throughout the course to allow for acquaintance and informal research discussions.
