World Congress on The Basic Science of Muscle Hypertrophy and Atrophy

This year’s ACSM World Congress will focus on the intrinsic and extrinsic variables that regulate skeletal muscle hypertrophy and atrophy.  The World Congress is a unique opportunity to bring together interdisciplinary investigators for the most comprehensive meeting ever held on this topic.  The program will include a keynote lecture, tutorials, and symposia from leading experts in the field with an emphasis on how exercise brings about skeletal muscle atrophy and hypertrophy and how these changes may relate to chronic disease.

Chair: Stuart Phillips, Ph.D., FACSM, McMaster University.
