ACSM's 2018 Annual Meeting will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota from May 29 to June 2. Register today to ensure your participation in this important meeting.

The April 2018 issue of Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews is available* online now! The articles in this issue cover a range of topics including:

  • the signaling network that controls the maintenance of skeletal muscle mass
  • the influence of exercise on gene expression
  • exercise promotion strategies for individuals with multiple sclerosis
  • biomechanical responses to osteoarthritis pain
  • lessons on responses to endurance training as revealed by studies on flies (Drosophila)
  • the fallacy of the live-high, train-low model

The assessment of cardiorespiratory fitness among children and youth is an important and feasible measure for population health surveillance. This issue features the Perspective in Progress "Making a Case for Cardiorespiratory Fitness Surveillance Among Children and Youth" from an authoritative group of experts that includes Justin J. Lang, Grant R. Tomkinson, Ian Janssen, Jonatan R. Ruiz, Francisco B. Ortega, Luc Leger, and Mark S. Tremblay.

Don't miss the tutorial on phosphoproteomic-based studies and the bioinformatics tools that can be used to interrogate key outcome data. "Identifying Novel Signaling Pathways: An Exercise Scientists Guide to Phosphoproteomics," by authors Gary M. Wilson, Rocky Blanco, Joshua J. Coon, and Troy A. Hornberger. The publication also includes online content to help the reader use a program for the analysis of phosphoproteomic data, as well as questions for Journal Club discussions.

Authors Lee M. Margolis and Donato Rivas share their insights on microRNA and aging in the article and video abstract for "Potential Role of MicroRNA in the Anabolic Capacity of Skeletal Muscle with Aging."
