Research Center for Molecular Exercise Science, team

The main profile of the lab is to conduct basic research on regular physical activity and professional sport. A major focus is on how regular physical activity and diet can affect molecular pathways in different organ systems. We are also involved in studies of preventive as well as therapeutic treatments on animal models and human subjects.

We work together with numerous Hungarian and other eminent research group around the globe. It is important for us to provide evidence based, up to date information and scientific results for the new generation of sport professionals. Our philosophy is to actively develop sport science, pass on knowledge and open up new horizons for our students in the BsC, MSc or in the PhD programs.
