Top Publications


Research Overview


  • Centre for Medical and Exercise Physiology, Graduate Medicine, UOW.  

    Research themes related to heart, lung and skeletal muscle physiology.

    Primarily the current work focus is directed towards the role of dietary LC n-3 PUFA (DHA) in skeletal muscle physiology and function. We use a combination of animal model and human interventions specifically targeting muscle fatigue.

    Other projects include the role of DHA in cardio-protection and the impact of load carriage on respiratory function.
