Physical activity research

Centre for Physical Activity Research

BenteThrough translational research and dissemination of knowledge, it is our hope that the Centre for Physical Activity Research (CFAS) will be able to develop targeted exercise training regimes for specific disease groups by applying an unconventional strategy that we label: “from man to molecule and back”.

A key principle of the centre is that the research carried out in the laboratories can find direct application in the real world. Thus, training regimes that demonstrate promising results in a laboratory setting will be further tested and developed in large patient groups in a model municipality and/or at a model hospital department before the optimal training mode is translated into relevant national health institutions.

It is our wish that new research discoveries will be implemented and anchored in society, leading to change of praxis.
