Any amount of physical activity is better than none. In fact, a lack of physical activity is at the root of many common chronic health problems. However, it is not understood what molecular changes are induced by movement or how they improve the function of different tissues and organs in the body. 

The NIH Common Fund's Molecular Transducers of Physical Activity in Humans program aims to catalogue the biological molecules affected by exercise in people, to assemble a comprehensive map of the molecular changes that occur in response to movement and, when possible, relate these changes to the benefits of physical activity. This molecular map will contain the many molecular signals that transmit the health effects of physical activity, and indicate how they are altered by age, sex, body composition, fitness level, and exposure to exercise.
