Gareth is currently Professor of Exercise Biochemistry and Physiology within the Sport and Exercise Sciences Research Institute at Ulster. He graduated from the University of Ulster with a BA (Hons) in 1996 and an MSc in 1997. He was awarded his PhD in Biochemistry and Physiology in 2002 and is a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine. Professor Davison has published widely in the area of Exercise Biochemistry and Medicine, and his work can be read in many high impact factor journals such as Free Radical Biology and Medicine, Free Radical Research, Diabetologia, Diabetes, Medicine and Science in Sport andExercise and Clinical Science. He is the current Director of the Exercise Biochemistry and Physiology Research Laboratories at Ulster. Professor Davison is extremely pro-active with regards development in technology and knowledge transfer, having worked with several national and international companies in product design and development. He has attracted significant grant income and has conducted many successful research projects with local government agencies and global international companies and organisations. Professor Davison has a successful record of PhD student completions and is currently supervisor to 7 full-time PhD students. He has examined postgraduate research degrees at several national (Ireland and UK) and international universities.
Professor Davison’s research interests include cellular and peripheral free radical production in exercise, health and disease. In particular, he is interested in DNA, lipid and protein oxidation (oxidative stress) and the effects of antioxidant supplementation on gene expression and exercise in diabetes. He is also interested in the metabolomic and proteomic effects of exercise and their relationship to oxidative stress. Professor Davison collaborates with many national and international scientists of world-leading research institutes and centres of excellence in order to conduct innovative experimental research regarding the basic mechanisms associated with oxidative stress in health and disease.
