Understanding Heterogeneity of Responses to, and Optimizing Clinical Efficacy of, Exercise Training in Older Adults Workshop

On April 7-8, 2022, the Division of Geriatrics and Clinical Gerontology at the National Institute on Aging hosted the virtual workshop: “Understanding Heterogeneity of Responses to, and Optimizing Clinical Efficacy of, Exercise Training in Older Adults.”

The goals of this meeting were to:

  • Provide brief, state-of-science updates on the variation in exercise response with regards to disease conditions/co-morbidities and targeted outcomes.
  • Identify key research gaps and propose transdisciplinary research approaches to elucidate the relationships between endogenous/intrinsic and exogenous/extrinsic factors underlying the variations in exercise responses.
  • Propose research opportunities to Identify systemic modulators biomarkers, and other potential mechanisms underlying exercise responsiveness.
  • Advance work on this problem by stimulating cross-field scientific discussion, networking, and collaboration between investigators from different scientific fields.
