K.G. Jebsen Center for Exercise in Medicine 

CERG (Cardiac Exercise Research Group) is an interdisciplinary group consisting of both experienced researchers and young, promising research talents at NTNU and St. Olavs Hospital in Trondheim. The goal of the centre is to identify key cellular and molecular mechanisms that are behind the favourable effects physical exercise has on the heart, veins and skeletal muscle.

We aim to define optimal exercise programs for “most people” in order to increase the likelihood of development and preservation of good health throughout life.

The Cardiac Exercise Research Group (CERG) aims to define optimal exercise programs for everyday people in order to increase the likelihood of development and preservation of good health throughout life. We study the effect of exercise as a medicine in order to treat heart and lifestyle related diseases. The group consists of eminent scientists, technicians, medical doctors and promising research talent from all over the world. CERG is localised in the fully integrated St. Olavs University Hospital. In 2011 CERG achieved the prestigious honour of becoming a K.G. Jebsen Center for Medical Research. The group is headed by Professor Ulrik Wisløff.
