Andy Blannin’s research interests lie in the study of the physiological and biochemical responses to exercise and training. The focus of his recent work has been on postprandial lipaemia, appetite endocrinology and aspects of the metabolic syndrome. He is currently studying the mechanisms underlying the beneficial effect of walking on the blood fat concentration after eating, and the effect of exercise on the hormonal regulation of hunger.

Dr Blannin, who has examined 23 PhDs, is currently supervising a doctoral researcher on the short-term effects of exercise on appetite regulation. He welcomes applications from potential doctoral researchers working in his areas of interest.
