Whey protein and milk derivates for enhancing muscle performance of middle-aged and older exercisers/athletes SSEHS/JF

Whey protein appears to be a useful nutritional adjunct to exercise training. While other more novel milk derivates may also offer functional benefits when consumed alongside regular physical training, but these have had limited scientific attention to date. Read more

Musculoskeletal loading from a minimal wearable sensor system during rehabilitation

Project details. “In the future… training and rehabilitation programmes will use wearable and simple imaging technologies to estimate tissue level biomechanics derived from personalised neuromusculoskeletal modelling in real-time in the real-world. Read more

Predicting musculoskeletal loading from video during rehabilitation

Project details. Background. Knowledge of tissue-specific loads on the muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments of the human musculoskeletal system has implications for the prescription and monitoring of exercises across clinical, sporting, and occupational rehabilitation. Read more

Testing the efficacy and mechanisms of the 'gravitostat' as a tool to support long-term weight loss in people with obesity SSEHS/JAK/2

Obesity is disease that adversely affects the physical and mental health of many people in low- and high-income nations. Whilst progress has been made regarding lifestyle approaches supporting weight loss, weight regain remains a key clinical challenge. Read more

Boys will be boys? Exploring boys’ embodied identities within physical education SSEHS/OH/RS

Research has consistently identified how the reproduction of gendered bodily norms through PE – influenced by broader physical cultures – can shape young people’s ideas of ‘valued bodies’ (Aartun et al., 2022). Read more

Investigating the relationship between differences in sensory processing and paranormal experiences SSEHS/RN

This project will investigate the extent to which differences in sensory processing contribute to the perception of paranormal experiences by using natural variations in sensory processing to determine when sensory events are perceived differently and if these perceptions are linked to unexplained (and paranormal) sensory experiences.

Investigating skeletal muscle sex differences and the effects of gender transition SSEHS/HFD

Skeletal muscle is important for health maintenance as well as athletic performance. Understanding how skeletal muscle sex differences can impact function will allow us to create more specific interventions such as training programmes. Read more

Sport and the remaking of ‘race’ during the Black Lives Matter Movement SSEHS/ND

This study will examine sports role in the facilitation of athlete activism against racism across the Black diaspora (North America, UK, Western Europe) amongst the backdrop of BLM from a decolonial and intersectional perspective. Read more
