The beneficial effects of exercise at the whole-body level are numerous, with adaptive responses occurring in many organs and protecting against metabolic diseases, such as obesity and type 2 diabetes. During this Cell Symposium, we will delve into the fascinating mechanistic and physiological complexities of exercise biology at the cellular, tissue, and systemic levels and explore how exercise improves human health, including in disease settings and during aging. We will also look at how genetics and epigenetics influence the metabolic responses to exercise and discuss the potential implications for the coming age of precision medicine.
