Understanding exercise and MoTrPAC, sponsored by Pennington Biomedical Research Center

We know that being physically active is good for our health, but there is not a clear understanding of what actually happens deep within the body to improve health when we exercise. Some individuals benefit from exercise more than others, and there is yet to be a scientific reason why. The Molecular Transducers of Physical Activity Consortium (MoTrPAC) study will show the viability in the response to an intervention like physical activity. This is the largest national research study aimed at understanding how physical activity improves health and prevents disease. The main goal of MoTrPAC is to gain a better understanding of how the body changes with physical activity, which will help researchers and doctors understand what exercise is best for each person’s unique body type.
