World Congress on the Basic Science of Exercise and Vascular Health

Innovative science and major advances

World Congress on the Basic Science of Exercise and Vascular Health

 

This year’s Basic Science World Congress offers a unique opportunity to learn from leading scientists in and outside of the exercise field. Find out how exercise supports vascular health, including new information about sex and racial differences in vascular function, the benefits of exercise and heat therapy, recent studies covering exercise and blood flow in the brain and a contemporary look at arterial stiffness.

Note: Session Schedule Times in PDT (Pacific Daylight Time)

The Birds and the Bees of Vascular Aging

Vascular aging, featuring stiffening and thickening of the large elastic arteries and endothelial dysfunction, is dramatically different between women and men, related in part to sex differences age-related changes in the sex hormone environment. Historically, habitual exercise attenuates or ameliorates age-related vascular dysfunction in older men, however, surprisingly, this is not consistently observed in older women, suggesting sex-specific adaptive responses to exercise training in older adults. Dr. Moreau’s presentation will focus on sex differences in vascular aging and how changes in gonadal hormone (i.e., estrogen and testosterone) levels contribute to vascular aging in women and men. She will also discuss sex-specific adaptive responses to exercise training on vascular function in older adults, and the potential modulatory role of gonadal hormones on vascular adaptations to exercise.
