Stuart is an Associate Professor in Exercise Biochemistry and Epigenetics within the Faculty Research Centre. His research interests focus on epigenetics, genetics, and biochemical mechanisms of chronic disease. He has a special interest in identifying epigenetic factors that influence the risk of musculoskeletal soft tissue pathologies and he is exploring the link between miRNA expression in exercise and their applcation as biomarkers for age related disease. Prior to coming to Coventry, Dr. Raleigh led the University of Northampton’s Centre for Physical Activity and Chronic Disease (PACD) and he has extensive international research collaborations. His teaching interests focus on Alzheimer’s disease and multifactorial genetics. He is a scientific advisor to the South African Open Genome Project (OGP), Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and Section Editor (Genetics theme) for the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine.
