The Team

Dr Daniel West


Senior Research Fellow


I am a Senior Research Fellow within the Institute of Cellular Medicine, Newcastle University. I moved to Newcastle University in January 2016; prior to this, I was a Reader at Northumbria University.

I completed my PhD in Human and Exercise Physiology in 2011 at Swansea University, where I studied within both the Diabetes Research Group of the College of Medicine, and the Department of Sport and Exercise Science.

I have a keen interest in the physiological and metabolic responses people with diabetes have to exercise and nutritional interventions. Current research focusses on strategies that enable people with Type 1 diabetes to exercise without compromising their glycaemic control.
