Prizes for young CMAR researchers at ECSS in Prague

Nima Gharahdaghi and Natalie Shur won prestigious Young Investigator Prizes for their oral presentations at the annual meeting of the European College of Sports Sciences (ECSS) in Prague last weekend. Nima’s presentation was “The physiological and mechanistic effects of chemical endogenous testosterone depletion during resistance exercise training in younger men: a double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial”. Natalie presented ‘Three days bed rest appreciably impairs whole-body glucose disposal (which is fully restored by exercise) but is not further accentuated after 56 days bed rest’.

As well as cash prizes, they’ve been chosen to represent ECSS as exchange delegates and invited to present to the Japanese Physical Fitness and Sports Medicine Conference in Kagoshima next year.
