Effort Underway to Honor Bruno Balke

The Department of Kinesiology is pleased to announce a fundraising campaign to honor the legacy of Dr. Bruno Balke. Balke was a professor emeritus of physiology and kinesiology at UW-Madison. Balke is credited with being the first exercise physiologist to chart the precise relationship among oxygen consumption, exercise and cardiovascular health. At a time when bed rest was the general prescription for heart patients, he was an early advocate of heart-strengthening exercises. His is warmly remembered as a leader and mentor in the field of exercise physiology. Our goal is to rename the Biodynamics Lab at UW-Madison in his honor. Gifts to support the Biodynamics Lab can be made online or by mail.

To give online, visit the secure UW Foundation website.

To give by mail, send a check to:
