WP2: Acute and chronic health effects of sedentary behaviour


      Tightly controlled acute and chronic experimental training studies will be used to address the following questions:


      man on scales

      1. Do these cardio-metabolic biomarkers show a biological gradient with the intensity/duration of the behaviour displacing sedentary time?
      2. Are the health effects of regular transitions from sedentary time independent of the total reduction in sedentary time?
      3. Does weight status, ethnicity, or age moderate these effects?
