Dawn E Bowles

Dr. Dawn Elizabeth Bowles, PhD is Assistant Professor in Surgery within the Division of Surgical Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine. She obtained her Ph.D. in Microbiology from Louisiana State University.

Andreas Brodehl

Dr. Andreas Brodehl is a Principal Investigator at the Heart and Diabetes Center NRW, University Hospital of the Ruhr-University Bochum, Erich and Hanna Klessmann Institute.

His research interests include genetic cardiomyopathies, using different models such as cardiomyocytes derived from induced pluripotent stem cells, and mouse and zebrafish for functional and structural analysis. In addition, he uses explanted myocardial tissue for histology, gene expression and structural investigations.

Yung-Sheng Chen

I am a full-time academic professor with a specificity in neuromuscular and cardiovascular physiology in the Department of Exercise and Health Sciences at University of Taipei. I completed a M.Sc. degree in Sports Sciences from Brunel University, the UK, in 2007 and a Ph.D. degree in the School of Health and Human Sciences, Southern Cross University, Australia in 2011. My current research interests focus on the effects of training load monitoring, exercise recovery intervention on autonomic nervous function, effects of biofeedback training on cardiovascular adaptation, and effects of ageing on neuromuscular function, physical activity and health, and football/futsal sciences
