Mission statement

According to your basic medical and performance physiology focus, the Sports and Performance Physiology Department focuses on research and research-led teaching on investigations into the influence of physical activity or inactivity on people of all sexes, ages, and all performance requirements as well as under special environmental conditions, such as microgravity, and the implementation of the knowledge gained for those affected from high-performance sport to rehabilitation or in the context of public health activities.

Specific research areas concern questions from prevention, rehabilitation, mass sports, competitive sports, high-performance sports and disabled sports. The integration of molecular biological and genetic basic research, as well as their practical implementation, enables permanent innovation in these research areas.
