Sports Science

Sport and exercise science research occurs within the world-leading Applied Sports Technology Exercise Medicine (A-STEM) Research Centre. Research spans the areas of science, technology, health and medicine applied to sport, exercise and health settings with children, older people, clinical groups and elite international sports people. Importantly, sport and exercise science research is applied in nature and populates teaching, 3rd mission activities and work-related learning opportunities. It has impact on elite sport, students, industry, patients and the general public. Recent PhD theses include: influence of recovery modalities on neuromuscular and endocrine function in professional rugby players; athlete monitoring and athlete preparation; the effect of commando joes' school-based military fitness intervention on children's physical activity levels, behaviour, attendance and academic achievement; glycaemic, metabolic and hormonal responses to resistance exercise in type 1 diabetes; examination of the incidence of cardiovascular disease and diabetes risk in a workplace-based setting: project Sir Gar; evaluating the effects of a lifestyle intervention programme in the Carmarthenshire region; the use of observation as an intervention to manipulate collective efficacy; influence of regular antenatal physical exercise on cardiovascular, haemodynamic and autonomic nervous system (CHANS) function during and after pregnancy.
