Keynote: Richard Hughson: Mr. Spats meets Major Tom
APNM Presidents' Lecture in honour of Richard Hughson by Dr. Kevin Shoemaker, Canada Research Chair, Integrative Physiology of Exercise and Health, Professor, Western University
As an athlete, coach, scientist and friend, Dr. Hughson has achieved excellence on the world's stage and ranks as one of the world's great integrative physiologists. As the most cited Exercise Physiologist in Canada, he has had a global impact on our understanding of the exercise (or lack thereof) and health cardiovascular and cerebrovascular systems. Successes learned as an athlete and coach carry over into his research, as marked by a scientific integrity, dogged persistence in the face of adversity, trend-setting ideas, and care for student success. His research now links what appear to be disparate concepts across his entire career into an unexpected parallel between aging cardiovascular systems, brain health, and risks of long-term space flight for astronauts, again setting a new trend and opportunities for the global spotlight. his trainees now cover the country, and his work circles the Earth.
