About this event

Dr Emma O'Donnell will discuss the historical and current understanding of the cardio effects of estrogen therapy and what the future might find.

Dr O'Donnell graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Exercise Science from Brighton University before completing an MSc and PhD in exercise science at the University of Toronto, Canada.

Her research focuses on the cardiovascular health of women, with emphasis on the independent and combined effects of estrogen and exercise training on factors that regulate blood pressure, heart rate, and blood vessel function in young and middle-aged women.
She is also currently investigating sex differences in the independent and combined effects of nutrient intake and exercise on the age-associated decline cardio health.
This room can be accessed by arriving at the East entrance of the building, where you will be met and escorted to the room by a member of staff. The building has disabled access.
