Said Ibeggazene PhD

Clinical Science Research Fellow


I work as Research Fellow on an NIHR funded programme grant (STAMINA - Supported exercise TrAining for Men with prostate caNcer on Androgen deprivation therapy), aiming to develop and integrate exercise into the NHS prostate cancer care pathway.


I have a BSc in Sport and Exercise Science from Loughborough University and a PhD in cardiovascular exercise physiology from the University of Leeds. I have worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Academic Vascular Surgical Unit at Hull Royal Infirmary. I have previous experience as an Athletics Coach (sprints) and a personal trainer. My professional interests are broadly underpinned by an interest in applied exercise physiology and how evidence about the benefits of exercise promotion for health improvement is generated and used.
