Biography

Adjunct professor Kari Kalliokoski, PhD, MSc currently works as the Research Manager at the Turku PET Centre. He graduated from University of Jyväskylä in 1998 in Exercise Physiology and did his PhD work in University of Turku in 1998-2001. After that he has worked as postdoctoral fellow at Turku PET Centre in 2001-2003 and at Institute of Sports Medicine Copenhagen, Bispebjerg Hospital, Coipenhagen Denmark in 2003-2004. He returned to Turku PET Centre in 2004 and has thereafter worked in different researcher positions and as a research group leader. In 2004-2011 he worked as research scientist and in 2011-2016 as Academy Research Fellow fiunded by Academy of Finland. This was followed with a short period as research scinetist before he was appointed to his current position as the Research Manager of the Turku PET Centre.



Research
During my whole career the main research interests have been acute and chronic (training) effects of exercise on human body and especially on skeletal muscle and myocardial blood flow and metabolism.

Over the past few years we have focused on to study the health benefits and physiological effets of high-intensity interval training.
