 Speaker Profiles:

Bente Klarlund Pedersen
Professor, Director, Centre for Physical Activity Research (CFAS), Rigshospitalet and University of Copenhagen, Denmark

At CFAS we conduct translational research with the aim of developing exercise as medicine for people with e.g. diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular diseases. The research group has identified skeletal muscle as an endocrine organ that produces and releases signal peptides, which we have named “myokines”.

Michael J. Joyner, M.D., is the Caywood Professor of Anesthesiology at Mayo Clinic where he was named Distinguished Investigator in 2010. His research focuses on exercise physiology, human performance, blood pressure regulation, metabolism, and transfusion practices.  He is also interested in the limits of scientific reductionism and the de-hyping of biomedical communications.  The latter interest has led to a number of thought provoking and critical essays on the so-called Precision Medicine narrative in the popular press and key scientific journals.  Professor Joyner attended the University of Arizona where he graduated with a B.S. in 1981 and an M.D. in 1987.  After leaving Arizona he completed his residency training in anesthesiology at the Mayo Clinic in 1993 and then developed an independent research laboratory that has been funded by NIH since that time.  His former fellows have established research programs at leading institutions throughout the world and he has held leadership positions at Mayo, in the extramural research community, and with leading journals.
