Center for Exercise Science Seminars

The CES is proud to present this ongoing speaker series where we bring in leading researchers representing the cardiovascular, muscle, nerve, brain and behavioral science fields. Presentations are approximately 45 minutes long and are followed by a 15-minute Q&A session. Seminars are open to the public.

Presentations are from 4:00-5:00p.m. in FLG Room 235. Please refer to schedule below for dates.
