Three members of staff from the School of Sport, Health and Applied Science (SHAS) at St Mary’s University, Twickenham will be presenting their research at the annual British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) conference at the end of the month. Richard Burden, Jon Goodwin and Daniel Muniz will share their research at the conference which takes place at St George’s Park, the Football Association’s new talent development centre, on Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th November. Jon Goodwin, Programme Director for St Mary’s MSc Strength and Conditioning Science (Distance Learning) programme, will present a paper on ‘Reliability of isometric hip extensor torque assessment’. Sports Science lecturer Richard Burden is to explore ‘The effect of intra-venous iron treatment on aerobic capacity and iron metabolism in elite distance runners’, a paper that was overseen by Dr Charles Pedlar, Director of the Centre for Health, Applied Sport and Exercise Science (CHASES) at the University. There are two recent papers that consider iron deficiency in elite athletes from their research group in the Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise journal and the British Journal of Sports Medicine. Graduate Assistant Daniel Muniz-Pumares will also present two research papers. The first is entitled ‘Determination of the accumulated oxygen deficit in a single trial’ while his second paper will focus on ‘The variability of the accumulated oxygen deficit during supramaximal square-wave exercise to exhaustion’. This work was overseen by St Mary’s Programme Director for the MSc in Applied Sport and Exercise Physiology, Dr Mark Glaister. Dr Pedlar said, “We're really excited to be contributing to this year's BASES conference at St George's Park, and the School of Sport, Health and Applied Science will be well represented with papers being presented in sports medicine, physiology and biomechanics.” All research abstracts will be published in the Journal of Sports Sciences after the conference. The two-day conference will follow a new format which includes presentations, poster displays, debates, symposiums, keynote lectures on sport and exercise science, and will conclude with an awards presentation.
