Biography

Dr Brian Carson graduated with a first class honours  BSc. in Sport Science and Health from the School of Health and Human Performance at Dublin City University in 2005. Brian subsequently undertook a PhD funded by a scholarship from the Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology (IRCSET) entitled “The regulation of metabolic gene expression in human skeletal muscle by exercise: the influence of exercise intensity and contraction frequency” which was awarded in 2010. He then was appointed as a postdoctoral researcher funded by Diabetes UK at the Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology at the University of Liverpool where he spent 18 months  investigating the intracellular trafficking and release of the adipokine adipokines. From there, Brian joined the team in the Physical Education and Sport Sciences department at the University of Limerick as a lecturer in Exercise Physiology in January 2011 where he is pursuing research into the role of exercise and nutrition in the regulation of metabolism for performance and health.

Interests:

Brian has a keen interest in all things sport, but predominantly Gaelic football. He currently plays for his club St. Patrick’s, Palmerstown in Dublin (http://www.stpatricksgaa.ie/) and he has previously been a coach with the Limerick Senior Football team (http://www.limerickgaa.ie) and is the current head coach for the University of Limerick Sigerson Cup team. He has carried out physiological and performance testing on numerous soccer, rugby and inter-county GAA teams. His interest and applied work in sport and performance crosses into his research and Brian is currently working as part of a multi-disciplinary team investigating the role of strength training in endurance performance.


 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

                        

Research Interests

Research Interests and Expertise

Brian's research interests are primarily focussed on the plasticity and metabolic adaptation of skeletal muscle in response to physical activity and nutrition. A member of the Centre for Physical Activity and Health Research (C-PAHR) and the Health Research institute (HRI), Brian’s current research projects are investigating the association between physical activity behaviours and metabolic health with a specific focus on metabolic flexibility and how physical activity interventions can monitor these outcomes.

In collaboration with a number of principal investigators at UL, Brian has recently received funding from the Food for Health Ireland (FHI, http://www.fhi.ie/) programme to investigate the efficacy of nutrient supplementation with proteins mined from milk to provide metabolic outcomes which support Healthy Ageing and Performance Nutrition (HAPN).

Expertise

·         Resting and exercising human metabolic measurement including substrate utilization and resting metabolic rate by indirect calorimetry

·         Objective measurement of daily physical activity and sedentary behaviours

·         Invasive tissue sampling including venous cannulation, muscle biopsy and microdialysis

·         Tissue culture and cell model assessment of metabolic function in response to perturbations such as nutrient feeding

·         Analysis of human tissue and cell culture generated samples for biomarkers, enzyme activity, protein localization, gene expression, intracellular signaling and trafficking
