Active Voice: Q&A -- Dr. Scott Powers on 2010 Integrative Physiology of Exercise (IPE) Conference

from By Scott K. Powers, Ed.D., Ph.D., FACSM

Scott K. Powers, Ed.D., Ph.D., FACSM, is a UAA Endowed Professor and Distinguished Professor in the Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology at the University of Florida. He investigates effects of muscular exercise and inactivity on both cardiac and skeletal muscle. His research is focused on exercise-mediated changes in cardiac and skeletal muscle antioxidant systems and the role of these changes in protecting against ischemia-reperfusion injury. Dr. Powers has provided significant leadership in ACSM for many years, including a term as vice president in 1997-99. Dr. Powers is the program committee chair for ACSM’s Integrative Physiology of Exercise Conference.

It’s not too late to register for the 2010 ACSM Specialty Conference on Integrative Physiology of Exercise (IPE) to be held at the Eden Roc Resort in Miami Beach, Florida from Sept. 22-25.

In the last several years, Scott Powers, Ed.D., Ph.D., FACSM; George Brooks, Ph.D., FACSM; Ronald Terjung, Ph.D., FACSM and other ACSM leaders have developed a forum where scientists in molecular, cellular, and integrative exercise physiology can come together to exchange on the latest research in the field. What began as a proposal from the ACSM Research Advisory Committee in 2000 became the highly successful ACSM Integrative Physiology of Exercise (IPE) Conference in 2006. The inaugural meeting in 2006 topped 450 attendees, and the 2010 IPE Conference, to be held later this month, hopes to be even larger.

Dr. Powers is the chair of the 2010 IPE Conference. William Herbert, Ph.D., FACSM, ACSM Web Content Editor, had a chance to interview him for Sports Medicine Bulletin so he might share some of the origins, content and features of this unique ACSM conference.

Questions include:
  • Are there other special features that readers should know about?
  • Will the content focus at the IPE conference generally remain the same or differ each time the meeting is held?
  • Will members in other ACSM interest areas benefit by attending?
  • Can you share with us how this specialty conference originated and its development as an ACSM specialty meeting over the last several years? More
