Short biography

Klavs Madsen is Head of Department and Professor in Exercise Physiology, Department of Physical Performance at the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences (NiH), Olso, Norway.

His research is focused in cell biology, physiology and biochemistry of skeletal muscle. He investigates the underlying mechanisms of skeletal muscle adaptations to training and inactivity with specific attention to carbohydrate and fat metabolism, muscle growth and muscle waste using mainly a whole-body approach.

The research concentrates on human endurance capacity, both in a performance and health perspective.
