Research Interests

Research Interests and ExpertiseBrian's research interests areprimarily focussed on the plasticity and metabolic adaptation of skeletalmuscle in response to physical activity and nutrition. A member of the Health Research Institute (HRI), Brian's current researchprojects are investigating the effect of physical activity behaviours, exercise and nutrition on metabolic health and function. In collaboration with a number of colleagues at UL, Brian has received programme funding from Food for HealthIreland (FHI, http://www.fhi.ie/) to investigate the efficacy of nutrientsupplementation with proteins mined from milk to provide metabolic outcomeswhich support Healthy Ageing and Performance Nutrition (HAPN). Brian has also received funding from the Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine (https://www.agriculture.gov.ie/), the Marine Institute (https://www.marine.ie/Home/home), the Irish Research Council (http://research.ie/) and several industry partners including Sport Ireland Institute (http://www.instituteofsport.ie/).
Expertise·Resting and exercising human metabolic measurement includingsubstrate utilization and resting metabolic rate by indirect calorimetry·Objective measurement of daily physical activity and sedentarybehaviours·Invasive tissue sampling including venous cannulation, musclebiopsy and microdialysis·Tissue culture and cell model assessment of metabolic functionin response to perturbations such as nutrient feeding·Analysis of human tissue and cell culture generated samplesfor biomarkers, enzyme activity, protein localization, gene expression,intracellular signaling and trafficking
