Learning objectives
These sets of lesson will be focused on the presentation and discussion of analytical biochemical and metabolic methods to assess the effects of physical exercise at the molecular level and at the level of single organs and tissues. In particular two areas will be exploited
1) novel methods to study non-invasively energy metabolism at the whole body level and at the level of the bone, skeletal muscle, liver, heart and adipose tissue with special emphasis on metabolic imaging

2) methods of molecular biology aiming at addressing potential approach in sports medicine and at addressing the basic principles of genomics, proteomics and metabolomics
Expected learning outcomes
The students will be able to establish the effects of physical exercise on energy metabolism on the whole body system and at the level of specific organs and tissues and at the molecular level within these sites. They will learn the relationships between "omics", sports activity and performance
