Title

“Genomic Aspects of Human Performance; Emphasis on Muscle Strength, Muscle Size and Aerobic Capacity” by National Institute of Education (NIE)

(For All Coaches)

Description

Athletic performances greatly depend upon cardiovascular endurance and/or muscular strength and power. An individual’s functional adaptability depends upon the interaction between heredity and environment. Recent improvements in DNA technology offered physiologists the opportunity to further evaluate the impact of genetic background on athletic performances. This public lecture discusses the roles and impact of genetics on athletic performances.

This public lecture will be delivered by Dr Theodore Angelopoulos (Director of Research, School of Health Sciences and Director, Obesity Research Centre, Emory & Henry College in Virginia, USA). He holds a PhD in Exercise Physiology and an M.P.H in Epidemiology from the University of Pittsburgh, USA.

Dr Angelopoulos’ key research interests are:

  • Effective lifestyle interventions for obesity and cardiovascular  disease prevention; and
  • Polymorphic variations in genes that code for specific proteins contribute to human variation in both health and disease.
