Like father, like daughter: Can maternal or early life exercise break the cycle of paternal diet-induced metabolic programming in female offspring?

Oliveira, Filippe (2017) Like father, like daughter: Can maternal or early life exercise break the cycle of paternal diet-induced metabolic programming in female offspring? PhD thesis, Victoria University.

...the aim of this research was to investigate if maternal exercise (Chapter 3) or offspring early in life exercise (Chapter 4) could attenuate the negative metabolic consequences in adult rat offspring sired by high-fat fed obese fathers (Chapter 3 and 4).
