Scott K. Powers, Ph.D., FACSM, is a UAA-endowed professor and distinguished professor in the Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology at the University of Florida in Gainesville. He investigates effects of muscular exercise and inactivity on both cardiac and skeletal muscle. His research is focused on exercise-mediated changes in cardiac and skeletal muscle antioxidant systems and the role of these changes in protecting against ischemia-reperfusion injury.
*Dr. Powers is chair of the 2018 Program Committee for ACSM’s Integrative Physiology of Exercise Conference. He is joined on the committee by three additional highly accomplished scientists who have contributed to the planning process: L. Bruce Gladden, Ph.D., FACSM; Karyn Hamilton, Ph.D., FACSM; and John Quindry, Ph.D., FACSM.
It is not too late to register and attend the 2018 ACSM Specialty Conference, “Integrative Physiology of Exercise (IPE),” to be held at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina in San Diego, California on September 5-8, 2018. This exciting meeting will begin with a keynote lecture presented by Dr. Michael Joyner at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, September 5, 2018, with a welcome reception to follow.
To emphasize the rapid research developments in key areas of exercise physiology, the IPE 2018 symposia program and debates will address the following major topics:
Scientific poster sessions are scheduled on each day of the conference, and these unopposed poster presentations will comprise a key component of the conference. Indeed, the outstanding abstracts presented at this meeting will shape the exchange of information and ideas that transpire in this exciting venue. We are confident that you will thoroughly enjoy this outstanding scientific meeting in beautiful San Diego.
