Professor Robert James
Dean of the Faculty of Life Sciences
Expertise: Physiology, muscle performance
Professor James is a muscle physiologist. His main research focus is to utilise physiological techniques, such as the work loop technique, to better understand the effects of drugs, temperature, obesity and ageing on muscle performance.
He has been awarded a number of research grants to study drug-induced changes in myocardial performance, thermal physiology of skeletal muscle, effects of natural periods of hypometabolism on muscle performance, the causes and mechanisms of muscle fatigue, trade-offs between sprint and endurance performance, effects of body size on skeletal muscle performance.
He is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA), a chartered scientist (CSci) and an elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology (FRSB).
