Personal profile

Approach to teaching

My didactic philosophy at all levels is best summarised as being research-driven and evidence-based but packaged in a great deal of enthusiasm. In terms of postgraduate supervision, my approach is based on teamwork, cutting edge technology with particular emphasis on research impact where each team member of the research team feels empowered that their individual contribution is essential towards a common goal. My supervisory approach is “hands on”, thus allowing me to get to know each student well so that I can assist in their holistic development in a manner that can best be summarised as “bringing up children with different interests but having only three years at best to do it”. This approach has served me well as reflected by numerous student awards (e.g. best presentation at Young Physiologists Symposium, Coventry, 25-26th September, 2003; Young Investigator Award, 14th European Congress on Obesity, Athens, June 1-4, 2005; 2013 Bar-Or International Scholar Award of the American College of Sports Medicine; 2013 Charles M. Tipton National Student Research Award of the American College of Sports Medicine; Prof Tom Reilly Doctoral Dissertation of the Year Award 2014; 2016 Aspetar Young Investigator Award at the World Congress of Sports Medicine, Ljubljana, Slovenia) and the standing of my students long after they have graduated (e.g. numerous academic positions including Professors at institutions such as Oxford and Cambridge and even a Secretary General of an Olympic Committee). 

Research interests

Current research priority is the application of “omics” (i.e. genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics and proteomics) to the detection of drugs in sport with particular reference to recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEpo), blood doping and testosterone. Research undertaken in the Collaborating Centre [affiliated to “Foro Italico” University of Rome] of Sports Medicine (part of an international network of 27 research laboratories with a mission to promote best practice sport medicine principles for athlete care and active living, www.fims.org/about/ccsm/) is having a significant impact in the field of sport, exercise science and medicine. Two primary examples are the Sub2 marathon project (www.sub2hrs.com) and the Athlome Project (www.athlomeconsortium.org).

The SUB2 marathon project (www.sub2hrs.com) is the first dedicated international research initiative made up of specialist multidisciplinary scientists from academia, elite athletes and strategic industry partners with the aim to promote clean sports i.e. high performance marathon running without doping. While the true extent of doping in sport remains difficult to accurately quantify, high-profile doping cases in cycling and athletics reinforce the call for new approaches that build on the significant progress made in the fight against doping since World Anti-doping Agency (WADA) was established. A novel proof-of-concept idea motivated by the need to focus on a holistic approach that simultaneously focuses on preventing doping, protecting the clean athlete, and promoting peak performance without doping is being piloted. As such, all athletes participating in the project undergo regular independent doping controls (blood and urine). Tests are carried out, handled and analysed and the data interpreted in accordance with WADA’s World Anti-Doping Programme. While there are no guarantees the Sub2 marathon project will succeed in delivering a sub two hour marathon within 5 years, a number of outcomes beyond the breaking of the sub two hour barrier are envisaged including the promotion of clean high performance marathon running and the development of the next generation anti-doping tests, “intelligent” training methods using omics technologies, real time performance management systems, optimal training and performance nutrition, and novel training and racing footwear designs.

A documentary film on the Sub2 project was commissioned in 2018 entitled “Enhanced” and produced by award winning director Alex Gibney and funded by ESPN (USA) (private streaming of the documentary can be provided on request as the film has now aired and available only via pay TV).

The aim of the Athlome Project (www.athlomeconsortium.org) is to characterise the genetics and biology of sport and exercise medicine, as a platform to understanding healthy body function and major chronic disease conditions (e.g., cardiovascular disease, obesity, type 2 diabetes). The Athlome project captures genotype and phenotype data of elite athletes, adaptation to exercise training (in both human and animal models), and muscle-related injuries from existing studies and consortiums worldwide. To achieve this ambitious goal, different approaches are being used including (but not limited to) genome-wide association studies (GWAS), whole exome sequencing, RNA sequencing, genotype-phenotype association, and epigenetic analyses. Particular priority is also given to tissue-specific and systemic “omics” analysis (such as transcriptomics in the first instance) to develop personalized medicine applications including “intelligent training” and the discovery of “omics” signatures of doping.

Supervisory Interests

Professor Yannis Pitsiladis has an established history of research into the importance of lifestyle and genetics for human health and performance. Following 15 years at the University of Glasgow, Scotland where he created the largest known DNA biobank from world-class athletes, he was appointed (in 2013) Professor of Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Brighton. Current research priority is the application of “omics” (i.e. genomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics) to the detection of drugs in sport with particular reference to recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEpo), blood doping and testosterone. Research undertaken in the Collaborating Centre [affiliated to “Foro Italico” University of Rome] of Sports Medicine (part of an international network of 27 research laboratories with a mission to promote best practice sport medicine principles for athlete care and active living, www.fims.org/about/ccsm) is having a significant impact in the field of sport, exercise science and medicine. Two primary examples are the Sub2 marathon project (www.sub2hrs.com) and the Athlome Project (www.athlomeconsortium.org). His most recent research is funded by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), he is currently a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Medical and Scientific Commission, a member of the IOC Adverse Weather Impact Expert Group of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, member of the Transgender and Disorders of Sexual Development (DSD) Expert Group of the IOC, and member of the IOC Medical and Scientific Research Fund for the protection of athletes’ health through prevention of injury and illness in sport and anti-doping. In addition, he is a member of the Executive Committee and Chair of the Scientific Commission of the International Sports Medicine Federation (FIMS), member of the Scientific Commission of the European Federation of Sports Medicine Associations (EFSMA), has sat on two WADA committees and is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). He has published over 185 peer-reviewed papers, written and edited a number of books and has featured in numerous research documentaries (e.g. ESPN, BBC, NHK Japan, CNBC) and popular books (e.g. Bounce, The Sports Gene).
