1st Endurance Research Conference

THE SCIENCE BEHIND ENDURANCE PERFORMANCE


About

Andrew Jones PhD is Professor of Applied Physiology at the University of Exeter, UK, where he is presently Associate Dean for Research in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences. Prof Jones received his B.Sc. in Sports Science (First Class, 1991) and his Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology (1994) from the University of Brighton, after which he completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of California in Los Angeles. Prof Jones was appointed as Senior Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University (1997) and was promoted to Reader (2001) and Professor (2004) before joining the University of Exeter in 2005. Prof Jones is internationally recognized for his expertise in the following areas: 1) control of, and limitations to, skeletal muscle oxidative metabolism; 2) causes of exercise intolerance in health and disease; 3) respiratory physiology, particularly the kinetics of pulmonary gas exchange and ventilation during and following exercise; and 4) sports performance physiology, particularly in relation to endurance athletics. Recent work, in collaboration with colleagues in the University of Exeter Medical School, has focused on the role of dietary nitrate in enhancing nitric oxide production and in modulating blood pressure, blood flow, and muscle efficiency and performance. Prof Jones has authored more than 240 original research and review articles and is co-Editor of three books. He is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine, the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences, and the European College of Sport Science. Jones is Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Sport Science and serves on the Editorial Board of nine other international journals in sports medicine and exercise science. Prof Jones acted as consultant physiologist to UK Athletics for many years and he is presently ‘Special Advisor (Endurance Sports)’ for the English Institute of Sport. back to top
