The multidisciplinary Physical Activity and Health across the Lifespan (PAHLS) research group will work towards the following missions:
- Investigate the dose-response relationship between physical activity and health across the lifespan – from toddlers to healthy ageing.
- Enhance our understanding of why some people are active and others are not and implement and evaluate interventions and policies to increase physical activity.
- Innovate device-based assessment of physical activity and investigate the potential of technology to promote physical activity and deliver interventions aimed to increase physical activity and improve health.
- Exploring the societal benefits of an active population in relation to the multiplicative health, social, and economic benefits of physical activity.
- Fitness, Ageing and Bilingualism (FAB) - a research project that investigates the benefits of regular physical activity and bilingualism for language and other cognitive abilities in healthy ageing.
- International Childrens Accelerometry Database (ICAD). ICAD is a consortium including 20 partners which pooled and reduced raw accelerometer data using standardized methods to increase statistical power, create a more heterogeneous and potentially more representative sample, standardize and optimize the analytical methods used in the generation of outcome variables, and provide a means to study the causes of inter-study variability in physical activity.
- Determinants of Physical Activities in Settings (DE-PASS) – DE-PASS aims to identify, understand, and measure determinants which promote, maintain or inhibit physical activity across the lifespan and in different settings and translate this knowledge to assist policy-makers to achieve greater health impact.
- Lifestyle and Empowerment Techniques in Survivorship of Gynecologic Oncology (LetsGo) - en multisenter intervensjonsstudie på oppfølging etter gynekologisk kreft der 10 norske sykehus deltar.
- Physical training and Cancer (PhysCan).
