Biography

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 Research Associate role at Newcastle University in July 2018, immediately after his doctoral studies and 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 events for secondary school pupils and for patients living with cardiovascular disease. He was part of the research team which designed the 2017 BBC documentary 'How to stay Young' which aired in the UK and Hong Kong.

Research Interests

Nduka has vast experience in the design, assessment and implementation of physical activity and exercise interventions in ageing and heart failure.
