Per Aagaard
Per Aagaard is Professor in Biomechanics, Muscle Physiology and Biomechanics Research Unit (MoB), of the Institute of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics, University of Southern Denmark , and Guest Professor at the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, Department of Clinical Neuroscience and rehabilitation, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg , Sweden.

Currently, Per have been published 221 peer-review articles and book chapters in international scientific journals and text books. Further, 295 presentations at international scientific conferences and meetings have been published as abstracts in various physiology, sports medicine and biomechanics journals.

His specific research areas comprises

(1) Adaptive changes in neuromuscular function and muscle morphology/architecture induced by exercise/training and detraining/inactivity, incl. aging and immobilization;

(2) Evaluation of mechanical muscle function (strength, power, RFD) and postural balance in young and old adults;

(3) Effects of resistance training on musculoskeletal health and neuromuscular function in young and old adults;

(4) Neuromuscular and biomechanical aspects of ACL knee ligament injury in athletes;

(5) Myogenic stem cell activation with acute exercise and long-term training;

(6) Use of exercise in rehabilitation and prevention of tendinopathy and muscle-tendon injury;

(7) Athletic performance and exercise/training/biomechanical analysis in elite sports incl aging master athletes.
