Research Theme 1

      Exploiting the potential of the physical activity and sedentary behaviour paradigms in the prevention and management of chronic disease

      Key theme aims
      pedometer

       

      1. To better understand health outcomes, and factors moderating health outcomes, of sedentary behaviour in diverse populations through the conduct of targeted observational epidemiological research.
      2. To conduct experimental investigations into the acute and chronic health benefits of reduced sedentary behaviour.
      3. To conduct experimental investigations into chronic effects of short high-intensity bouts of physical activity.
      4. To advance the use of novel measurement technology in sedentary behaviour and physical activity for research and the benefit of patient health.

       

      Each aim will be addressed by an individual work package (WP) detailed below
