A warm welcome from your Deputy Director of Postgraduate Research

Hi! I am Dr Melitta McNarry and I am your new Deputy Director of Postgraduate Research!

My research focuses on understanding the mechanisms underpinning functional capacity across the health, fitness and lifespan. Much of my work is concentrated on developing effective ways to promote physical activity and exercise that are targeted at the key causes of functional limitation in populations such as those with Cystic Fibrosis, Asthma or at risk of cardiometabolic disease.

I am really pleased to have this role as I am passionate about the next generation of researchers and all the potential and promise they hold! Please do get in touch if you have any questions or if there is anything I can do to help.
