Associations of physical function with incidence of chronic conditions and risk of all-cause and specific mortality: longitudinal analyses accounting for genetic predisposition

Principal Investigator: Dr Rubén López-Bueno
Approved Research ID: 98633
Approval date: April 26th 2023

Lay summary

We will examine to what extent physical activity and muscular strength contribute to reduce the incidence of cardiovascular, cancer and other common chronic conditions when accounting for genetic predisposition. To date, most of scientific research has observed strong inverse associations, but recent research has suggested that these might be of lesser extent that commonly expected. Our research will provide more accurate and updated insights on this topic.
