Séminaire GONDIN

Séminaire Dr Julien Gondin

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation for healthy and cachectic muscles.

Julien will first provide a brief overview of both acute and chronic responses to Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) in healthy humans. Then, he will address how and to what extent NMES-induced muscle adaptations might be relevant in cachectic patients. Finally, he will present preclinical findings illustrating the benefits of NMES for minimizing cancer-induced cachexia. Biography: Julien GONDIN is a researcher at the Institut NeuroMyoGène (INMG) – UMR CNRS 5310 – INSERM U1217 – LYON, France where he leads the research project entitled “Neuromuscular electrical stimulation training to fight cachexia” in the Chazaud Team at INMG (http://www.musclestem.com/).
