Introduction – Who is Prof. Dr. Ulrik Dalgas?
Well, my name is Ulrik Dalgas and I’m professor at Aarhus University in Denmark. I have been interested in exercise rehabilitation in multiple sclerosis for the past 20 years. And I run a research team that is specialized in this particular aspect. We also do some studies in Parkinson, but multiple sclerosis is our main focus.
And maybe I should also declare that I’m an exercise physiologist by background. I’m not a medical doctor or a physiotherapist which many people tend to think. But I come from the more exercise background.
How and where can interested people follow your research activities?
Well, I have my personal homepage on the webpage of Aarhus university where you can see what we are working with and what we are publishing. And then also we do have both Twitter and LinkedIn accounts and stuff like that, where we also publish some of these things when we think there are interesting things. And we are also collaborating closely with the Danish MS Society. So when we have interesting results, we really try to break them there as well. So these would be the best channels. And we also, by the way, work with a number of German groups. There is a really strong exercise team in Hamburg led by Christopher Hansen, which I think you have spoken to earlier. And also, a professor called Philip Simmer, who is located in Dortmund. So we have really good German collaborators in this field as well. And we are also planning joint studies ahead with these people. So we hope we can make a strong Danish German connection in this field. #01:04:01#

Is there anything else you would like to share with the listeners?
Don’t focus too much on that it has to be a certain type of training. It’s much more important to do something that you can sustain and that you actually gain some pleasure from. That’s much, much more important I think in the long run.
See you soon and try to make the best out of your life, Nele
