Supervisors with this research interest
Faculty of Health Sciences
Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research
Luc van Loon is a Professorial Fellow at the Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research, ACU.
He is also a Professor of Physiology of Exercise at the Department of Human Biology and Movement Sciences at Maastricht University Medical Centre.
Luc has an international research standing in the area of skeletal muscle metabolism. Current research in his laboratory focuses on the skeletal muscle adaptive response to exercise, and the impact of nutrition and exercise interventions to modulate muscle metabolism in health and disease. The main research interests of his laboratory include exercise metabolism, sports nutrition, adaptation to endurance and resistance type exercise, and the use of physical activity and/or dietary interventions to improve health in chronic metabolic disease and with ageing. The latter are investigated on a whole-body, tissue, and cellular level, with skeletal muscle as the main tissue of interest.

Dr Imre Kouw is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Exercise and Nutrition Research Program under the supervision of Prof John Hawley. Dr Kouw completed her PhD in 2018 within the Muscle Metabolism Maastricht (M3) research group of Prof Luc van Loon at the School of Nutrition and Translational Research in Metabolism at Maastricht University, the Netherlands. Her PhD focused on nutritional strategies to attenuate muscle loss during hospitalization in older and clinical populations and involved numerous human intervention studies assessing the impact of protein interventions on muscle protein metabolism in older individuals using stable isotope tracer methodology.
Here in the Exercise and Nutrition Research Program her work involves investigating the effect of intermittent fasting strategies on muscle protein metabolism during health and disease. Imre has previous supervisory experience with BSc, MSc and the co-supervision of PhD students.
