: DMB embarked on a PhD in human physiology while working as the first research physiologist at the British Olympic Medical Centre, UK in collaboration with the Department of Biochemistry at Oxford University, UK (Prof EA Newsholme). A former international athlete, he was interested in the factors that limit systemic oxygen transport and the implications for human exercise performance. Following training at the Department of Medicine, University of California San Diego, USA (Drs PD Wagner, JB West, RS Richardson) and Departments of Surgery and Anesthesiology, University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, USA (Drs JM McCord, JT Reeves), he returned to the University of South Wales where he is currently employed as a Royal Society Wolfson Research Fellow and Professor of Physiology and Biochemistry leading the Neurovascular Research Laboratory. His research is “quantum superimposed” between two topics; how free radicals control oxygen delivery to the brain and the cerebrovascular complications associated with sedentary ageing.
