Arnold de Haan received the M.Sc. degree in biochemistry at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in 1978. He received his PhD degree in 1988 on the thesis “Mechanics and Energetics of Skeletal Muscle” He is professor in Exercise Physiology at the Faculty of Human Movement Sciences of the VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Since 2003, he is part-time professor in Muscle Biochemistry at the Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, United Kingdom. He is main coordinator of the European Consortium for Research into Biological Movement (Biomove). He is Director of the Research Institute MOVE of the VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands. His main professional interests concern short-term changes in metabolic and functional muscle characteristics (fatigue, potentiation) and adaptations to increased and decreased muscle activity as a result of training, disease, bedrest, spinal cord injury and aging. With integrative and translational research, he tries to bridge the gap between research at the genetic/molecular level and research performed whole human body level.
