  • Professor John Hawley

    John is currently Head of the Exercise & Nutrition Research Group and Professor of Exercise Metabolism in the Department of Exercise Sciences. He has published over 200 scientific manuscripts (PUBMED), written over 80 articles for technical journals and has authored numerous book chapters for exercise biochemistry and sports medicine texts. He currently sits on the Editorial Boards of many international journals including the American Journal of Physiology (Endocrinology and Metabolism); The Journal of Applied Physiology (U.S.A.); The Journal of Sports Sciences (U.K); Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise (U.S.A.); Sports Medicine (New Zealand; and The International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism (U.S.A.). His laboratories research interests include the interaction of exercise and diet on skeletal muscle metabolism; the molecular bases of exercise training adaptation; the cellular bases underlying exercise-induced improvements in insulin action; and exercise-nutrient interventions for weight loss. He is a consultant for several professional sports teams in Europe and Australia and a regular invited speaker at numerous international conferences every year.

  • Professor Luc J C Van Loon

    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.

  • Nat Sch Exercise Science

  • Dr Christian Lorenzen

    My research focus is on exercise for people with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Currently I am investigating the response of blood glucose and microcirculation to whole body vibration exercise. I am also supervising HDR students examining training loads for team sports, and motion analysis of the Olympic and kettlebell snatch lifts.
