About Fawzi Kadi

Fawzi Kadi is a professor of exercise physiology at Örebro University. He developed an international masterprogram  in sport physiology and medicine and contributed to the development of the thematic area "Neurology and Musculoskeletal system" in the medical education. He has earlier developed a bachelor program in sport sciences. He is group leader for the research group:  Metabolism, Inflammation & Physical activity"(MIPA). His research focus is: (1) Biological mechanisms behind sarcopenia and age-related chronic inflammation, "inflammaging" and (2) development of non-pharmacological intervention based on physical activity and nutrition for a healthier aging
