Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The continuously assessed course consists of an interactive lecture block and a seminar block. During the seminar block, the students present and discuss international literature in the area. The course topics include general principles and novel findings in the fields of applied and integrative physiology on the subject of sports nutrition. A particular focus is on the molecular effects of carbohydrates, fat, protein, antioxidants and phytochemicals in response to acute exercise, during recovery as well as during adaptation to endurance and strength training in performance and health contexts. In addition, the course consists of interdisciplinary excursions (e.g., exercise physiology, exercise immunology, redox biology and translational physiology). The course is strongly led by the own experience of and the own research by the course leader.

Assessment and permitted materials

Assessed will be the commitment during the course (8%), handouts to be created (24%), and the presentation (in German) of scientific studies in the area including the ability for discussing the topic (68%).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Target group of the course are Master students. The students will interpret, present and discuss current, international scientific literature. By doing so, they will be able to apply and deepen existing physiological knowledge by means of application-oriented topics in the area. For completing the course 60% of the assessment criteria need to be reached (see above).

Examination topics

Lecture material and selected scientific literature, the latter of which the students present within the frame of the seminars (similar as in 'journal clubs').

Reading list

Hard copies of the lectures, scientific literature (will be partially provided).
