The professorship Sports Medicine / Sports Biology deals with both theoretical and practical issues of physiological exposures of physical training in rehabilitation-, health- and performance-orientated sports. Thereby, effects of exercise and training on biological adaptation processes in healthy, chronically ill and disabled people of every age are examined.
Another focus is the verification of the relationship between health and motor performance of different age groups in the context of demographic change. Neurogenesis and Psychosomatics over the entire life span are also research fields of the professorship Sports Medicine / Sports Biology.
The development of performance diagnostic methods in different scopes of application of sports and exercise as well as the assessment of their transferability and relevance for everyday life provides a basis for prevention, therapy and rehabilitation as well as for sportsmen in recreational sports, health- and performance-orientated sports practice.
