MUSCLE MATTERS: NEW INSIGHTS ON THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN NUTRITION, INFLAMMATION AND METABOLISM
Course Description:In this course, Joel Cramer, PhD, FACSM, FNSCA, FISSN, and Phillip J Atherton, PhD, AFHEA, will present the definition of metabolic flexibility and sarcopenia; summarise the differences in fat and carbohydrate utilisation between sarcopenia and non-sarcopenia; discuss the role of muscle in metabolic dysfunction, inflammation, glucose control, and muscle loss in diabetes; and describe the increased risk of insulin resistance in ageing and diabetic skeletal muscle. Originally presented at the ESPEN 2021 Virtual Congress ANHI Symposium.
- Run Time: 39

Dr Cramer’s lab studies the form and function of human skeletal muscle. Specifically, they use in vivo human subject research models to study the applied physiology and neuromuscular mechanisms that explain changes in muscle strength, size, and function. They use their evidence-based information on skeletal muscle form and function to address contemporary problems, discover innovative methodologies, and translate our findings to practitioners and consumers.
Dr Cramer has authored or co-authored over 200 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 200 conference research presentations, and a textbook entitled "Laboratory Manual for Exercise Physiology, Exercise Testing, and Physical Fitness." He served as a past member of the Board of Directors and Fellow of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), and Fellow of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN).
