Research Interests
  • Interactions between genomics, nutrients and the environment in both health and disease with application to treatment interventions in a variety of disorders with particular reference to obesity, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, dementia and cancer. 
  • 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) and growth hormone (rHuGH). 
  • Genetic and epigenetic markers of injury and training response with particular reference to “omics” (i.e. genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, proteomics and the likes) technologies. Including the molecular basis of connective tissue and muscle injuries in sport.
  • Genomics of performance with particular reference to the world-class athlete. 
  • Research strategies for marginal (i.e. worthwhile) performance gains in the world-class athlete with particular focus on extreme environments (e.g. heat, cold, altitude).
  • Physiologic, genetic, psychosocial and economic determinants of the phenomenal success of east African distance runners and sprinters of west African ancestry (e.g. Jamaican “sprint factory”).

Biography

Yannis P Pitsiladis, MMEDSci., PhD, FACSM. 

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 and Director of the FIMS Reference Collaborating Centre of Sports Medicine for Anti-Doping Research at the University of Brighton. His 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) and growth hormone (rHuGH).  

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 Executive Committee and Chair of the Scientific Commission of the International Sports Medicine Federation (FIMS), and has sat on two WADA committees. He is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and an expert committee pool member of the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). He is an adjunct Professor of Medical Physiology at Addis Ababa University (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia). He has published over 120 peer-reviewed papers, written and edited a number of books and has featured in numerous research documentaries (e.g. BBC, NHK Japan, CNBC) and popular books (e.g. Bounce, The Sports Gene). He is also the founding member of the SUB2 marathon project (www.sub2hrs.com): the SUB2 marathon project 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 marathon running i.e. high performance marathon running without doping.
