Newswise — ACSM Conference on Integrative Physiology of Exercise, sponsored by the American College of Sports Medicine. This conference is endorsed by the American Physiological Society, and scholarships are provided by the FASEB MARC program.

Symposia and keynote lectures focus on four themes:
• Exercise, stem cells and adaptation
• Exercise metabolism: integration of heart, skeletal muscle and fat
• Exercise, oxidative stress, and mitochondrial dynamics
• Circadian rhythms, sleep, systems health and exercise performance
• Cytokines and "Exer-kines"; new insight into exercise and system's health
