M²RUN (Exercise physiology & metabolic lab)

In the exercise physiology and metabolic lab, we can comprehensively measure the energy metabolism at rest and during exercise. As such we can study the effect of lifestyle (e.g. nutrition, training, etc.) on the energy and muscle metabolism in different (patient) populations. The lab is located at the M2RUN (Metabolic Muscle Research Unit, Building T, campus CDE, UAntwerp) and consists of a respiration room for performing indirect calorimetry (golden standard for energy metabolism measurements) and a Bodpod air plethysmograph for measuring body composition.
