Public Health: The Daily Mile, and Genetics of Elite Performers - Colin Moran

Episode 115,   Nov 29, 2019, 02:17 PM

On this week's show we talk to Colin Moran, Associate Professor at Stirling University.

We talk about the Daily Mile, an initiative that gets children moving during the school day. We talk about Colin's involvement- his research into the benefits both for children and their teachers, and benefits of a lunch time run!

We also discuss his specialism- the genetics and epigenetics, and how the genes of elite performers could impact public health. We discuss research - who this benefits and how some might be keen to exploit gene therapy developments to artificially improve performance.

We also  start our new topic in December and are looking for your input. We are tackling participation in the sport of endurance running. Is our sport closed? Are we too white and middle class? Should we care?  Email us on, call the WhatsApp line +31612679529 and leave a message or follow us on Twitter | Instagram | Facebook
