Our physiology research spans a whole range of investigations, from single ion cell function in cell membranes, right through to the integrated study of the human body.
We’ve recruited a talented, highly experienced research team, who together explore areas including muscle fuel; protein and mass modulation; and cardiovascular physiology and nutritional metabolism in the context of ageing, health and chronic disease.
We’re particularly well known for our research into human physiology, with outstanding facilities in the David Greenfield Human Physiology Unit, where we conduct world-leading investigations into metabolic regulation, with our team of human volunteers.
As a collaborative research community, we’ve built close links with our clinical colleagues at The University of Nottingham’s Graduate Medical School in Derby. We’re also a core part of the MRC-Arthritis Research UK Centre for Musculoskeletal Ageing Research and the Arthritis Research UK Centre for Sport Exercise and Osteoarthritis.
Our team also has long-standing partnerships with industry and clinical translational research networks – locally, nationally and internationally. This commitment to collaboration enables us to share groundbreaking knowledge and drive new developments that make a real difference to people’s lives.
