Projects per year
Dr Nduka Okwose joined the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences of Coventry University in March 2021 as a Research Fellow in the Cardiovascular and Lifestyle Medicine Research Theme. He is passionate about lifestyle medicine specifically, the role of physical activity, exercise and nutrition in the prevention and management of cardiovascular and metabolic disease. His PhD studies were fully contextualised within the Active-at-Home Heart Failure study in which he managed and coordinated a clinical study which involved a personalised physical activity intervention for stable chronic heart failure patients. Nduka was appointed to his first postdoctoral role at Newcastle University in July 2018 and also held Honorary Research Fellow position at the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals, NHS Foundation Trust. He is actively involved in public engagement and advocacy for healthy lifestyle and has organised engagement events tailored towards people living with cardiovascular disease. He was part of the research team which designed the BBC documentary 'How to stay Young' which aired in the UK and Hong Kong.
Nduka has vast experience in the design, assessment and implementation of physical activity and exercise interventions in ageing and cardio-metabolic disease. He has also carried out extensive research evaluating non-invasive technologies used to assess cardiovascular and metabolic function. He is very keen to develop exercise and nutrition interventions targetting people living with metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes with particular focus on minority populations.
