Profile Information

The Centre for Sport, Exercise and Life Sciences furthers the understanding of fundamental biological pathways and processes, applying biological sciences to advance diagnosis and prevention of disease. Our aim is to enhance Coventry University’s reputation for scientific research of excellent quality, across a range of areas and discipline boundaries, to create an inter-disciplinary continuum of expertise covering three key themes:

  • Cellular and Molecular Biosciences. We characterise and manipulate key cellular and molecular systems which underlie normal and pathological cell function. Read more. 
  • Biological Systems, Health and Disease. Systemic processes reflect an integration of genetic, infectious, toxic, ischaemic, and metabolic insults in acute and chronic disease.  We undertake research which has the potential to profoundly alter approaches to disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment;
  • Physical Activity, Exercise and Obesity. We research the factors that influence physical activity, exercise and obesity, in children and older adults, to improve function, health and wellbeing. This work develops and delivers interventions that is intended to increase longevity and reduce ill health.
