Fredrik Hjulstad Bækkerud
Background and activities
My background is in exercise physiology with a masters degree from NTNU. In 2019 I finished my PhD thesis in molecular medicine where I looked at the effects of exercise on mitochondrial function in cardiovascular diseases.
Currently, I'm working as an advisor at the Research Section at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. Here I have responisbilities including coordinating the faculty's core facilities and infrastructure.
