About Elodie Ponsot

Elodie Ponsot is an Associate Professor in Sport Science (2013). Since august 2019, Elodie is also the Head of the Division of Sport Science. Since 2021, she leads the EPSM research team (Exercise Physiology and Sport Medicine).

In 2004, she obtained her PhD at the University of Strasbourg I, France, on the plasticity of muscle mitochondrial function in response to training under hypoxia in elite athletes (supported by the International Olympic Committee) and the preferential utilization of energetic substrates.

Between 2005 and 2011, she was appointed as a Post-Doc at Örebro University, first as research assistant, then as Senior Associate Lecturer. She is employed as senior lecturer since 2012. Her research focuses on acute and chronic exercise-induced adaptations with an integrative approach, i.e. from physical function to molecular and cellular mechanisms. With this approach, she is experienced in and has a strong interest for developing studies designed to better understand the use of exercise to 1) optimize performance in sports (ex: training interventions, recovery strategies), 2) promote health at stages of life (ex: healthy aging) and 3) improve health condition in patients with chronic diseases (ex: neuromuscular disorders, diabetes) or in rehabilitation process.

She also took a significant part over the years in the development of the Sport Science lab platform.

She has 20-year experience in teaching at the university level in sport physiology, molecular assessments and scientific methods at bachelor, master and research level. She has also been Programme Director of Sport Science and Coaching Programme (2017-2019) at the Division of Sport Science.
