Dr Brendan Gabriel – Circadian rhythm | Molecular Body Clocks | Metabolism | Diabetes

Brendan did his PhD at the University of Aberdeen with a focus on exercise physiology and skeletal muscle biology in terms of insulin resistance and the role high-intensity interval training (HIIT) may play in preventing cardiovascular disease.

Then he carried on with his academic research in Stockholm, Sweden at the Karolinska Institute with an interest in exercise as a preventative treatment for diabetes, in addition to studying the molecular aspects of muscle biology in metabolic disease. Specifically, how the physiological and molecular body clocks interact with disease and environmental factors, such as exercise.

He is now at the University of Edinburgh where he is embarking on a project looking at genetic causes of altered metabolism in skeletal muscle, which may increase the risk of obesity and metabolic disease.

In his spare time, Brendan is a keen cross-country skier and runner, having completed several marathons in both disciplines.
