World Congress on the Basic Science of Exercise, Circadian Rhythms and SleepWed., May 29 - Fri., May 31
Bridging Research and Practice for Healthy, Active Lives!
This year’s Basic Science World Congress focuses on biological and physiological mechanisms of exercise, circadian rhythm and sleep. This is a unique opportunity to bring together interdisciplinary investigators for the most comprehensive meeting on this topic. The program includes keynote lectures, tutorials and symposia from leading experts.
