Exercise, Cardiometabolic Health and Reproduction (EXCAR) Research Group

Exercise, Cardiometabolic Health and Reproduction (EXCAR) Research Group

The Exercise, Cardiometabolic Health and Reproduction (EXCAR) Research Group aims to develop exercise training strategies to prevent lifestyle related diseases. We have a special focus on exercise as medicine in order to improve fertility and pregnancy outcome.

EXCAR was established in January 2015 with a grant from the Liaison Committee between the Central Norway Regional Health Authority and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The group is headed by Trine Moholdt.
