Research

Research interests

Dr Turner leads several projects in the physiology and endocrinology of stress:

The response of the hypothalamo-pituitary adrenal axis and sympatho-adrenal medullary system to psychological stress in women with high and low levels of physical fitness.
The response of the hypothalamo-pituitary adrenal axis and sympatho-adrenal medullary system to psychological stress in men who are lean and overweight/obese.
