The group incorporates both multi- and inter-disciplinary research aimed at improving the understanding of the relationship between physical activity, exercise, health and the predisposition to chronic diseases.

Application and translation spans elite athletes, the elderly, and children as well as patients with chronic heart and lung disease, spinal cord injuries, and motor impairments.
To integrate basic and applied research to elucidate the role of physical activity and exercise in health, disease and rehabilitation
To improve our understanding of the integrated systems biology and psychology of exercise, from youth to senescence, in health, and in chronic disease or injury states where tolerance or motor control is limited
