PhD student

Luke graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a BSc Sport & Exercise Science in 2013. He then moved to Loughborough University to pursue his interests, graduating with an MSc Sport & Exercise Nutrition in 2014. His final project investigated the effects PUFA’s on PPARδ and its downstream effects on Mitochondrial Biogenesis, in-vitro. In his spare time you will find him on the roof of the new NCESM building playing table tennis!

His PhD is part of the Translational Chemical Biology Research Group (TCB) investigating the effects of PUFA’s and their synthetic derivatives on inflammatory resolution in skeletal muscle, supervised by Prof. Mark Lewis along with Dr. Martin Lindley & Dr. Gareth Pritchard.
