James King - Senior Research Associate


      Leicester-Loughborough Diet, Lifestyle and Physical Activity BRU



      Research Interests

      • Interaction between exercise and diet and their interaction with energy balance, metabolism and chronic disease.
      • Sport and Exercise
      • Exercise Physiology focusing on the interaction between exercise and the neuro-endocrine regulation of appetite & energy balance.

       

      Current Projects

      James is currently involved with research in the following areas:

      • High intensity intermittent exercise and cardiometabolic health
      • Exercise & the hormonal regulation of appetite & energy balance
      • Bariatric surgery, physical activity and lifestyle
      • Adipose tissue, inflammation and metabolism
      • Exercise & chronic kidney disease
      • Oversees several work packages within the Biomedical Research Unit


      Professional Activities

      • Invited reviewer for Appetite Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise
      • European Journal of Applied Physiology
      • Guest Lecturer on Loughborough Exercise Physiology MSc module - Physiology of Exercise & Sport
