Sport and exercise nutrition

Some members of the school are very highly regarded scientists in the area of sports nutrition.  Current research topics include:

  • The role of protein in recovery from endurance exercise
  • Macronutrient and energy restriction; effects on whole body insulin resistance and glucose tolerance
  • Post exercise alcohol ingestion and recovery
  • Berry fruits, antioxidants and recovery from strenuous exercise

A number of these nutrition-related research projects are funded by external agencies.
