This project involves an international network of researchers, led by the University of Copenhagen, with collaborators from Karolinska Institutet and University of California, Irvine. The aim is to further understand the health promoting effects of exercise in people with type 2 diabetes by determining the interaction between circadian rhythms and the metabolic response to exercise and nutrition. This will allow us to define potent, practical, time efficient use of fitness and nutrition that can be implemented to prevent insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. We will take a “bench to bedside” approach and identify the time of day for optimal exercise-nutrient interventions to induce the greatest improvement of insulin sensitivity in people with type 2 diabetes.
