Success for Nottingham students at sports science annual meeting

Three students from the University of Nottingham were among the winners of the Young Investigators Award at the European College of Sports Science annual meeting.

A total of 82 young and emerging scientists presented to an international audience in Germany under two categories: oral presentations (10 minutes) and mini oral presentations (three minutes).

Andrew Hale and Joseph Bass took fourth and fifth place respectively in the oral presentations, taking home prizes of €1,000 and €500 each. Matthew Brook was awarded first prize in the mini oral presentations category and will be invited to present his research at the Exercise and Sport Science Australia Congress in 2018, as well as taking home €3,000 in prize money.

The award-winning presentations were:

Andrew Hale – Brain Grey Matter Volume and Cerebral Haemodynamic and Metabolic Responses to Exercise: Impacts of Age and Cardiorespiratory Fitness

Joseph Bass – The Vitamin D Receptor is a “Biomarker” of Hypertrophic Responses to Resistance Exercise and Mechanistically Regulates Muscle Mass

Matthew Brook – A Novel D2O Technique for Dynamic Quantification of Skeletal Muscle RNA Synthesis in Relation to Exercise and Ribosomal Biogenesis
