Dr Stuart Gray

  • Senior Lecturer (Institute of Cardiovascular & Medical Sciences)

Biography

Stuart graduated from the University of Glasgow with a BSc in Physiology and Sports Science and subsequently completed a PhD in Exercise Physiology from the University of Strathclyde. After post-doctoral positions at Strathclyde and Loughborough Stuart was appointed to Lectureship at the University of Aberdeen. In 2015 he took up a position in ICAMS at the University of Glasgow.


Research interests

Member: Metabolic Disease & Diabetes Research

Stuart has wide ranging research interests. His main area of focus is in uncovering strategies to counteract the age related loss of muscle mass, known as sarcopenia, and associated metabolic disorders. Recent research has focussed on the combined effects of resistance exercise and omega-3 fatty acids. He also attempts to used novel analytical techniques to further our understanding of the mechanisms underlying sarcopenia. Other areas of interest include the potential for high intensity interval training to be a useful public health tool and he also works with collaborators in Aberdeen to uncover the aetiology of fatigue in rheumatic conditions.
