Dr Wadleys research program has two major research streams centred on the impacts of physical activity and nutrition on adult health. The first stream examines the impacts of physical activity and the nutritional environments during early life on later adult health. The second research stream investigates exercise and antioxidant therapies for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and the regulation of mitochondrial biogenesis (synthesis) following exercise. Both of these topics have important implications for the treatment and prevention of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
