Experience LMU: “Exercise Physiology: Treating Diseases and Creating Athletes”

    Wednesday, November 2, 2022 at 4:00 PM until 5:00 PMPacific Daylight Time

    Caio Sousa, Ph.D.
    Assistant Professor of Health and Human Sciences
    LMU Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering

    Professor Caio Victor Sousa received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Physical Education and Exercise Science at Catholic University of Brasilia, Brazil. He earned his Ph.D. studying aging biomarkers in master athletes and non-athletes. In 2018, he completed a fellowship in the Miller School of Medicine, University of Miami, studying the influence of a community-based exercise program on depression scores in people living with HIV. Afterward, Professor Sousa was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Northeastern University, Boston, studying the impact of active video games on physical activity behavior, body composition, and cognitive parameters in children. His research primarily focuses on exploring how lifestyle influences aging biomarkers, modulating the risk to age-related diseases. Part of his research also explores the interaction between age, training level, physiological parameters, gender, and performance in endurance sports.
