Le Dr Aubertin-Leheudre est titulaire d’un B.Sc. en Kinésiologie (2000) de l’université de Montpellier (France) et d’une M.Sc. en réadaptation à la santé (Kinésiologie, 2002) de l’université de Toulouse (France) ainsi qu’une M.Sc en kinanthropologie (2003) de l’université de Sherbrooke dont le sujet était rôle de l’exercice et des hormones de synthèse sur la composition corporelle des femmes ménopausées. Elle a obtenu son Ph.D. en Gérontologie (2006) à l’Université de Sherbrooke sur la thématique des phytoestrogènes et de l’exercice dans la prévention des risques cardiovasculaires chez la femme ménopausée obèse ou sarcopénique-obèse. Elle a ensuite poursuivi sa formation de chercheur par un stage postdoctoral de 2 ans (2009) au département de (...) >  suite

Le but de ma recherche est 1) de caractériser le profil métabolique et hormonal d’une nouvelle sous-population chez les personnes âgées soit les sarcopéniques-obèses ; et 2) de vérifier le rôle préventif de supplémentation ou d’un programme d’exercice dans les effets délétères causées par le développement de la sarcopénie-obésité. Les femmes sarcopéniques-obèses sont des personnes caractérisées par une faible masse musculaire appendiculaire (bras+ jambe 40%). Ces femmes représentent environ 15% de la population de femmes ménopausées. Ces individus sont prédisposés au développement plus important de perturbations métaboliques (ex. résistance à l’insuline, hypertension) qui peuvent par la suite augmenter leur risque de développer le diabète de type 2 et des maladies (...) >  suite
