Brendan Egan, PhD is Associate Professor of Sport and Exercise Physiology at the School of Health and Human Performance, and National Institute for Cellular Biotechnology at Dublin City University, and a Visiting Research Scientist at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, Pensacola, Florida. He received his BSc Sport and Exercise Science from the University of Limerick, MSc Sport and Exercise Nutrition from Loughborough University, and PhD from Dublin City University, before completing post-doctoral training with the Integrative Physiology group at the Karolinska Institute, Sweden. His research investigates skeletal muscle function and adaptation across the life course with special interest in the synergy between nutrition and exercise interventions in populations ranging from athletes to older adults. His research group performs human trials involving both acute and chronic interventions for outcomes around performance (physical and cognitive), recovery and adaptation, which are complimented by skeletal muscle cell culture and pre-clinical rodent investigations. Outside of academia, he also practices as a performance nutritionist with emphasis on team field sport and endurance athletes, with most recent roles being with the Dublin hurling team and the Irish Paratriathlon team.
