Lecturers and IPAN researchers – in one
Most teaching staff at the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences are members of IPAN and teach areas that closely align with their research interests. Teaching materials, such as case studies and assignments, are often modelled around current research evidence.
IPAN staff who are focused on full-time research also provide guest lectures and supervise research students.
