Research Unit in Cardio-respiratory Physiology

The Laboratory research field evolves around the limitation factors of aerobic capacity. A particular interest is focused on the mechanisms of adaptation of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems during exercise, in patients, healthy subjects, sedentary or trained and including in extreme conditions.
The Laboratory's research projects are related to 3 main axes;
1) Pulmonary, systemic and cerebral hemodynamic limitation and adaptations during exercise,
2) Adaptations and limitations of aerobic capacity in extreme conditions, including altitude.
3) Exercise therapy; feasability and impact of physical activity and exercise in metabolic and cardio-respiratory patients 

ULB Interdisciplinary Research Institute for Sports

U-IRIS is intended to bring together research skills existing at ULB in the fields of sports and physical activity in order to stimulate collaboration and interdisciplinary research. The research carried out within U-IRIS could be the basis of evidence-based advice in various fields of sport and physical activity. ULB and each of U-IRIS partner groups, as well as their existing activities, platforms, infrastructures and collaborations, will gain in visibility, both internally and externally in a promising and rapidly evolving field.

The research carried out by U-IRIS is designed to be both fundamental and applied. It is developed around five major axes:
- clinics / sports medicine
- high level sports / performance
- rehabilitation / handicap and sports
- sports and society (including education through sports)
- prevention / public health / nutrition.

The groups participating in U-IRIS represent the Faculties of Philosophy and Social Sciences, Medicine, Psychology and Educational Sciences, Motor Sciences, the Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management, the School of Public Health, the Research Department, ULB-Sports and the Erasme Academic Hospital.
