Lettie is a Reader in Exercise Immunology at Loughborough University and her research interests span the effects of exercise on immune cell function and infection risk in elite athletes to the impacts of exercise on immunity, inflammation and infection in the general population and those with specific long-term conditions.
She has recently been awarded 3 years of funding from Heart Research UK to look at the acceptability of different exercise programmes for kidney transplant patients, which will also look at immune and inflammatory responses to activity. Lettie is also a key investigator for the lifestyle theme of the NIHR funded Leicester Biomedical Research Centre. Lettie retains her interest in performance sport and collaborates with the English Institute of Sport on joint funded projects aiming to maximise performance health.
