Professorial Inaugural Lecture: Professor John O'Hara
Date: Wednesday 10 May 2017
Time: 18:00 - 19:00 (arrival from 17:30)
Venue: James Graham, Headingley Campus
From the Laboratory to the Mountain and back again
In this lecture entitled From the Laboratory to the Mountain and back again, John will summarise his research evaluating the effects of ingesting different types of carbohydrates before and during exercise on fuel use and exercise performance. From his laboratory studies at sea level he will highlight that not all types of carbohydrates are equal and that different strategies before and during exercise may be beneficial for optimal fuel use and exercise performance. Professor O’Hara will also talk about his research on post-exercise liver and muscle glycogen repletion for subsequent exercise performance.
In addition, he will discuss his most recent work, which has taken the laboratory to the mountain to assess fuel use during exercise. He will focus on these unique data, which challenge the assumptions of the existing literature on fuel use at altitude. Furthermore, John will provide insights into his future laboratory-based research.
