Title: Sports Medicine and Exercise Physiology

Special issue note

A firm understanding of basic physiological principles is necessary to treat any orthopaedic or sports medicine condition. This special issue will help to further enhance the understanding of these principals to allow researchers and clinicians alike to improve the care provided to the general public. We hope that the topics addressed in this issue provide the inspiration and knowledge necessary to inspire further progress within this increasingly large field of medicine.

Short biography

I grew up in Wells, ME and graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Delaware with an Honors Degree in exercise physiology and minors in chemistry and medical humanities. I received my M.D from the University of Medicine and Dentistry New Jersey- Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and am currently completing my Orthopaedic Surgery Residency at San Antonio Military Medical Center in San Antonio, TX. As an active duty Officer in the United States Army I look forward to continuing to care for injured service men and women as an Orthopaedic Surgeon when I have completed my residency. I am very interested in both orthopaedic research and education and will likely peruse a career that has an academic tie-in, if not focus.

 

Special issue note

This special issue invites papers that examine the role of sport and exercise as medicine and the physiological mechanisms or principles that explain possible links between exercise and health. Manuscripts that consider how physical activity may play a role in prevention, treatment, or rehabilitation of chronic disease are welcome.

Short biography

I took up position of Lecturer in Health, Nutrition and Exercise at the University of Bedfordshire in 2012. My primary research interest is the consequences of sedentary behaviour (prolonged sitting) on metabolic health and appetite regulation, and the physiological benefits and strategies for breaking up sitting time. The ultimate goal of my research is to contribute unique knowledge and understanding to inform public health policy. Another of my research interests is the relationship of accelerometry assessed physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness with cardiometabolic disease risk I was part of the HAPPY study research team that has published several studies in the child and adolescent population.


Title: Muscle Hypertrophy

Special issue note

Muscle hypertrophy is the quintessential link between exercise physiology, performance enhancement, and metabolism. It has been targeted over the years through dietary (protein turnover), pharmacological (insulin biofeedback circuits), mechanical (ultrasound therapy), and inflammatory (reduction of reactive oxygen species) interventions with the intent of optimizing the synthesis:breakdown balance that has been so well characterized. Going forward, additional understanding of the mechanisms and role of muscle hypertrophy will take center stage in the evolution of mainstream diet and fitness programs validated through peer-reviewed medical research.

Short biography

Dr. Prologo earned his medical degree at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He went on to complete his training at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio, where he served as chief resident. His research interests have ranged from innovative, image guided pain control procedures, to the use of stem cells for musculoskeletal regeneration - and exercise physiology. He has pioneered the revolutionary Catching Point Transformation exercise program and will sit for additional certification from the American Board of Medical Specialties in Obesity Medicine in December 2015. Dr. Prologo currently serves as faculty in the Emory University School of Medicine.


Title: Sport Management

Special issue note

This special issue invites submissions that explore the complexity of psychological and sociological attributes that can influence on consumer behaviors in a variety of sport management contexts, such as sport marketing, sports participation, sports tourism events, physical activities, and youth sports.
