Meet Dr Jamie Pugh

Jamie performs post-doctoral research at Liverpool John Moores University. His work is highly relevant to human endurance and physical performance. He has done significant research on the effects of exercise on the gastrointestinal system – a key area in ultradistance events. He has also performed research into the effects of probiotic supplementation on endurance athletes.

Jamie has provided physiology support to a number of professional teams and to some of the best endurance athletes in Great Britain. The sports lab at Liverpool John Moores has benefitted from a £38 million investment and includes such facilities as environment and altitude chambers, and physiology and movement function labs.

In addition to his doctorate, Jamie has a BSc in Sports and Exercise Science from Loughborough University.

Jamie is a keen and accomplished runner in his own right – something that adds additional perspective to his research.
