About the 9th Seminar on Exercise in Medicine 

About Exercise in Medicine 2022

The Cardiac Exercise Research Group (CERG) arranged the 1st seminar on Exercise in Medicine in 2005. We invited our favorite researchers and world-leading scientists from all around the world and created a setting where we could learn, have fun and establish networks. Indeed, the 30 participants of the 1st seminar had lots of fun, created long-lasting relations and collaborations, and we all managed to learn something too. Since then, the seminar has grown but our aim has remained the same: To present and discuss recent progress in using exercise as medicine. 

The 7th seminar in 2017 had over 300 live and online participants from 25 different countries. Regardless, we managed to keep an informal and intimate setting, which we know sets the stage for open discussions, brainstorming, new ideas, and good research.  

In 2020, the pandemic brought multifaced challenges to individual and public health, medical management, ongoing research, and social networks. To preserve and establish networks for current and future research, the 8th seminar was set up as an international three-day webinar. We ended up with nearly 400 online viewers from 38 different countries. Although the webinar exceeded all our expectations, this year we are more than thrilled to invite you to an intimate two-day seminar at our home quarters here in Trondheim.   

In 2022, the 9th seminar is dedicated to our dear colleague and friend Professor Øyvind Ellingsen, who is retiring after a long and remarkable career. The scientific program contains lectures from invited researchers within dementia prevention, cardiac remodeling, biomarkers of cardiovascular health, sports cardiology, and the biology and genetics of exercise as medicine as well as updates on the ongoing research at our department. This year, we gladly invite PhD candidates, as well as other novice researchers and engineers to talk about their work during a combined mingle and poster session before a joint dinner party on the evening of December 14.

As organizers of this seminar, we create the field, but it is the players that make the game fun. We are therefore deeply grateful that you want to attend and share your time with us. Welcome to the 9th Seminar on Exercise in Medicine!
