Dr. Ananya Gupta

Director of MSc in Exercise Physiology, Assistant Professor, Discipline of Physiology , School of Medicine, NUI Galway

Ananya is a lecturer in the Discipline of Physiology. She is the Director of the MSc program in Exercise Physiology and Application in Therapy. She is also the founder and director of the Exercise Physiology Facility (EPF) located in the Human Biology Building which is an integral part of the Discipline of Physiology, School of Medicine, NUI Galway. The EPF has state of the art equipment and necessary expertise for carrying out clinical exercise testing. The EPF supports research, education and professional training in Exercise Physiology. Ananya’s research focuses on the application of exercise interventions in improving health and fitness in sports and diseases. Ananya’s research interest includes understanding the post treatment needs of cancer survivors (https://express.adobe.com/page/Kqp0lxsRjKr63/). Her group has developed and piloted an adaptive community based rehabilitation program that supports long term recovery and improvement in quality of life in cancer survivors (https://www.nuigalway.ie/can-react/). She leads the Neutro-PREDICT team (www.nuigalway.ie/neutropredict/ ) currently engaged in the development of a hand-held at home device that can be used to monitor early on-set of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia.
