Kinesiology, nutrition faculty and students present at sports medicine meeting
David C. Poole, professor in the kinesiology department, was chair of a symposium on Threshold Concepts in Athletic Performance at the recent international conference of the American College of Sports Medicine 62nd annual International Meeting May 26-30 in San Diego, CA.
He also presented "Oxygen and Skeletal Muscle; Physiological Thresholds: Measurement and Mechanistic Bases" and "Vascular Control Above Critical Power."
Timothy I. Musch, professor in kinesiology, presented "Is There a Disconnect Between Human and Animal Fatigue Models? What Do We Need To Do?"
