Description

'Going with the Flow: Exercise, Cardiovascular Health, and Models of Successful Ageing'


Successful ageing is an inarguable goal for most societies, but how should we assess whether ageing is successful? Is it simply the absence of overt disease, or can we aim for a definition that is more aspirational? Using examples of his research over the last two decades, Professor Sculthorpe will discuss how the interaction of exercise and cardiovascular health can inform our understanding of what it means to age well.


Professor Nick Sculthorpe

Nick received his first degree in Sport and Exercise Science at Liverpool John Moores University. He subsequently gained a Masters degree in Exercise Physiology from Master Metropolitan University, and then a PhD in Cardiovascular Physiology from the University of Glamorgan.

He joined UWS six years ago, as part of the what was then the 'new' Sport and Exercise Science programme at the old Hamilton Campus. During in his time Nick has supported the departments development in a variety of ways including leading programme validations, acting as a research mentor, and teaching on a variety of exercise physiology modules. He was one of the staff returned for Sport in the last Research Excellence Framework (REF), and is currently co-lead for the 2021 REF submission for Sport.

His research has consistently focussed on assessing cardiovascular health in different populations; ranging from athletes, to long-term steroid users, to different ethnic groups. For the last decade, Prof. Sculthorpe and his group have focussed more closely on how exercise can be used to minimise the age related decline in cardiovascular function, and has examined how Master athletes (those over 60yrs) may be used as a model to study successful ageing.
