Dr Stuart Galloway
Research focuses on regulation of fluid balance and on the impact of nutritional and exercise stimuli on carbohydrate and fat metabolism in human skeletal muscle.
Dr Naomi Brooks
Research investigates physical activity and health, skeletal muscle physiology including satellite cells (muscle stem cells) in conditions of muscle atrophy, and research capacity building in South Africa.
Dr Jenni Connelly
Research focuses on using physical activity to prevent, manage or cure health conditions.
Dr Thomas Di Virgilio
Research studies neuromuscular control, brain-to-muscle pathways, concussion and sub-concussion.
Dr Iain Gallagher
Research uses high throughput technology to examine mRNA and microRNA changes in a variety of biological contexts spanning pathology, development and immunology.
Dr Angus Hunter (Associate Dean for Research)
Research focuses on neuromuscular control in clinical and athletic populations.
Dr Lewis MacGregor
Research explores neuromuscular physiology and motor control across the lifespan, with particular focus on older adults and on athletic preparation and performance.
Dr Colin Moran (Director of Laboratories and Impact Champion)
Research focusses on how genetics and epigenetics interact with lifestyle choices and gender in elite athleticism and metabolic health. Additional research on physical activity in school children.
Dr Nidia Rodriguez-Sanchez
Research focusses on hydration, nutrition for health and athletic performance, metabolism, body composition, physical activity and exercise.
Dr Niels Vollaard
Research is interested in the health benefits of exercise in general and of the effects of high-intensity interval training (HIT) in particular.
We have extensive research facilities available to the group and the team is supported by two technical staff, one with expertise in analytical chemistry (Gillian Dreczkowski), and one with measurement science and data processing (Chris Grigson). Our group currently has two research assistants and twenty postgraduate research students (MPhil/PhD).
