16 APS exercise research highlights, from reduced flu mortality to proteomics & obesity

BETHESDA, Md. (Sept. 28, 2004) Bengt Saltin, keynote speaker at the 2004 APS Intersociety exercise meeting in Austin, Texas Oct. 6-9, weaves together a lifetime of learning and research experience that bridges the 1920 Nobel Prize for Physiology, the 1935 High Altitude Expedition to Chile, and the latest in international exercise physiology.

Dr. Saltin, director of the Copenhagen Muscle Research Centre, will draw on his early medical training with Erik Hohwu Christensen, a pupil of 1920 Nobel Prize in Physiology August Krogh who won for his work on increased muscle activity and oxygen diffusion. Christensen would later become famous for his work on the International High Altitude Expedition to Chile where he and his coauthors "fully confirmed...the opinion of Krogh, Barcroft and others that diffusion can account for the transfer of oxygen in the lung."

Completing the circle, Saltin and several collaborators published an article on altitude effects on oxygen consumption in the September 2004 issue of the American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulatory Physiology. (See below for references.) Saltin will discuss how Krogh and Christensen "conceived and formed the field of human integrative physiology using exercise as a key intervention," how American and European approaches to exercise physiology bifurcated, and where this type of physiology might be leading.

Among his many honors, Bengt Saltin received the International Organizing Committee 2002 Olympic Prize, which is underwritten by Pfizer Inc. In 1990 Saltin received the Honor Award from the American College of Sports Medicine, which honored Erik Hohwu-Christensen with the same award in 1981.

Editors note: Saltin is speaking at the American Physiological Society's 2004 Intersociety Meeting, "The Integrative Biology of Exercise," Oct. 6-9 in Austin. Information about the meeting can be found at (http://www.the-aps.org
