Profile

Becky completed her degree in Biomedical Science in 2005 and continued at The University of Hull to complete a PhD identifying peptide sequences which bind to MRSA for targeted photodynamic therapy of chronic wounds. Her current research involves investigation of exercise exercise, nutritional and lifestyle interventions in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), type 2 diabetes and obesity as well as all aspects of nutrition in health, disease and sports performance/recovery. Other research interests include the endothelial response, microparticles and heat shock proteins under normal, stressed and diseased states and the potential role of exercise/diet in preconditioning to attenuate the response as well as investigation of cell surface antigen expression as potential biomarkers of inflammation and decompression illness.
