About Thomas Chaillou
Thomas Chaillou is a senior lecturer in exercise physiology.
In 2011, he obtained a PhD (University of Grenoble, France) on muscle remodeling during hypertrophy and regeneration in hypoxia. Between 2012 and 2014, he was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Kentucky (USA) where he continued to develop his expertise on the mechanisms controlling skeletal muscle mass. Between 2014 and 2016, he performed a second postdoc at Karolinska Institute during which he focused his research on muscle function (force, fatigue, recovery) under physiological (e.g., exercise) and pathological (e.g., cancer, chemotherapy, ALS and ischemia) conditions. He became a senior lecturer at Örebro University in 2016.
His current research focuses on three main topics: 1) muscle and molecular biology under physiological (e.g., exercise, aging, thermal stress) and pathological (e.g., inflammation) conditions, 2) recovery strategies in sport and 3) physiological responses and adaptations to exercise.
His teaching primarily focuses on exercise physiology, sport performance, sport nutrition, research methods in Sports Science, and physiological/biological methods applied to Sports Science. He is involved and supervise students in different programs (Bachelor and Master levels) where he is responsible for several courses.
