Fundamental Movement Skills, Physical Activity and Obesity in British Children

This project aims to understand how early development of fundamental movement skills might impact on physical activity and body fatness in British children.

InoCardia: Novel human-cell based assay for assessment of cardiovascular liability

The aim of this project was to test the concept of a higher throughput functional cardiac cell contractile assay under truly physiological conditions, advancing information on how the heart behaves functionally and enabling the testing of inotropic drugs in these conditions.

Review of Evidence on the Physiological and Psychological Development of Children

In 2015 the UK Government gave Sport England a new remit to support children aged 5-14 years. SE commissioned Duncan, Eyre and colleagues to undertake a review (completed in March 2017) to inform the body’s response to this.

InoCardia: Delivering Improved Cardiac Safety Liabilities for Therapeutic Drugs Using the Contractome-AI

The commercialisation of Professor Maddock's academic research started with a vision that there was a fundamental need within the Pharmaceutical Industry for the development of improved physiological relevant model to assess cardiac contractility.

Feed Me How? A study of confidence and competence related to gastrostomy care and blended diet

The ‘Feed Me How’ project was implemented to evaluate the ICF on-line competency-based programme of learning around gastrostomy care with health professionals across the UK using a mixed methods and survey approach.

Pilot of a teacher training intervention to deliver student-centred motor learning pedagogical approaches

This project is a pilot of a teacher training intervention to deliver student-centred motor learning pedagogical approaches and improve primary school children’s motor competence and motivation in physical education

Addressing GPCR conformational flexibility

The large G protein coupled receptor (GPCR) family is a highly interesting target for drug design because a large proportion of current drugs bind to its members, and because the family offers much potential to exploit new targets.

Bioleaching technology for the recovery of metals from Electronic Waste - Research Project

The aim of the project is to develop a sustainable and environmentally friendly method to recover precious metals from electronic waste that will create a closed-loop system to recycle metals back into the supply chain as required in a sustainable circular economy.

Clinical Academic Research Development (CARD)

The main focus of CARD is to support allied health professionals working in the NHS undertake translational research, particularly in the field of nursing.

PostUraL tachycardia Syndrome Exercise (PulSE) study

A lifestyle intervention designed by people with POTS, for people with POTS.

Great expectations: a predictive processing account of human balance control

This research considers ways we can deliberately “manipulate” our predictive brains by using various interventions to modify our beliefs/expectations about an important perceptual-motor skills.

The Blended Diet Study: the perceived benefits and risk of using a blended diet with children and young people with complex health needs and enteral feeding requirements

The use of a blended diet as an alternative to prescribed formula feeds has provoked strong opinion in research and among professionals. The aims of the report will be to examine the evidence for best practice with regards to providing a blended diet via gastrostomy tube.

Teenage Cancer Trust North-West Pilot Site Evaluation: A participatory action research project in the NW of England evaluating Teenage and Young Adult cancer services

Coventry University were tasked with providing a  longitudinal evaluation of the Teenage Cancer Trust's pilot scheme in the North West. 

InoCardia: Human Traberculae Work-Loop Feasibility

The aim of this project was to develop a test that uses human heart muscle tissue in a way that can efficiently test many drugs, to reduce the risk of any approved drugs causing damage to the heart.

Skeletal muscle fatigue during locomotion

This project aimed to investigate various potential mechanisms of skeletal muscle fatigue that might explain the limits of locomotor performance observed in animals.

Using novel computational modelling approaches to address biased agonism at the Adenosine A1 receptor

We seek to apply cutting-edge advanced sampling molecular dynamics simulations to address the complex biological issue of how G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) transition between multiple active states.

Coffee Ingestion: Interaction Between Sex and Cycling Performance

The aim of this study was to investigate whether sex differences exist with regard to 5 km cycling time trial performance and affective responses following the ingestion of 300 ml caffeinated coffee, a placebo (coffee flavoured solution) and a control (no fluid).

The Effectiveness of a Primary School Based Badminton Intervention on Children’s Fundamental Movement Skills

This project examined if a badminton based intervention is effective in enhancing fundamental movement skills, physical activity, motivation to undertake physical activity, fitness and health in children aged 7-9 years.
