1The research project entitled “Evaluation of the impact of exercise / stress stimuli on the mechanisms and efficacy of beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyric acid (HMB) in trained and malnourished subjects” (project number: 2018/31/D/NZ7/00803) granted by the National Science Centre (Poland), under the supervision of prof. Krzysztof Durkalec-Michalski, PhD, DSc, Assoc. Prof is now being conducted in a close cooperation between Department of Sports Dietetics (Poznan University of Physical Education) and Department of Physiology and Biochemistry (Faculty of Physical Education and Sport) at Charles University in Prague.
The aim to the study is the evaluation of HMB supplementation on protein kinases activity and muscle protein synthesis, as well as body composition and physical capacity in trained athletes.

The scientists from our University - Paulina Nowaczyk, PhD from the Department of Sports Dietetics, as well as Joanna Kamińska, PhD and Tomasz Podgórski, PhD from the Department of Physiology and Biochemistry are engaged in the project performing. Charles University is represented, among others, by Doc.
