Exercise Sciences

Professor Robin Callister

We're designed for exercise, not for sitting! The exercise science research program of the PRC in PAN led by Professor Robin Callister is investigating the role of exercise in the prevention and treatment of many diseases including diabetes, asthma, mental health, obesity, stroke and other cardiovascular disease.

Exercise training is also the key to successful sports performance, and we are investigating the effectiveness of different training programs and other influences such as choice of running shoe on performance, factors that affect injury risk and the role of exercise in recovery from injury.
