Sports Physiology & Nutrition
Our research group investigates the physiological responses and adaptations to exercise, and determines the efficacy of novel physical training, nutrition and ergogenic interventions to enhance sport performance.
Our main research themes are:
- Fatigue in Exercise and Sport (A/Prof Simeon Cairns)
- Endurance (Aerobic) Physiology (Prof Andrew Kilding)
- Thermoregulation, Exercise and Sport (Prof Andrew Kilding)
- Athlete Health (Dr Dan Plews and Dr Deb Dulson)
Students should contact the relevant theme leader if you are interested in researching with us.
Our promise is to align our research activity across the above themes with the needs of sports and organisations and to connect our staff and postgraduates with industry through our applied and relevant research. to.
