Research Unit in Cardio-respiratory Physiology (IR021)

Faculty of Motor Skills Sciences | Motricity Sciences Research Centers

(Code: ULB387)

Person in charge of the unit : FAORO Vitalie.

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.
Laboratory's research projects are related to 3 main axes;
1) Pulmonary, systemic and cerebral hemodynamic limitation and adaptations during
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
