PHS Seminar: “Exercise in oncology is the key to helping children, adolescents and young adults with cancer: A perspective from physiological and psychological findings”

January 24 at 10:00 am to 11:00 am

Maxime Caru, MSc, PhD candidate (University of Montreal, Doctor of Exercise Physiology and Oncology; University of Paris Nanterre, Doctor of Psychology and Oncology; December 2019) and Penn State College of Medicine postdoctoral scholar candidate, will present “Exercise in oncology is the key to helping children, adolescents and young adults with cancer: A perspective from physiological and psychological findings.”

Coffee and light refreshments will be served. Registration is required; email abooth@phs.psu.edu to register.

Caru is a psychophysiologist and exercise scientist who is in his last year of PhD study. He is currently studying at the School of Kinesiology and Physical Activity Sciences of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Montreal in Canada. He is also studying at the Department of Psychology at the University of Paris Nanterre in France. His research focuses on the effects of physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness in pediatric cancer patients at the Sainte-Justine University Hospital Research Centre and the Pediatric Hemato-Oncology unit. Over the course of his PhD, he has been studying the effects of exercise in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) long-term survivors. In a broad outline, he is interested in how physical activity is associated with parameters in physiology, epidemiology, genetics, cardiac electrophysiology and psychology.

Caru’s work was rewarded during the American College of Sports Medicine congress in 2019 when he received the Cancer SIG – Karen Hornbostel Memorial Award.
