Professor Yannis Pitsiladis was appointed Professor of Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Brighton in 2013. His current research priority is the application of 'OMICS' (genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics and proteomics) to the detection of drugs in sport with particular reference to recombinant human erythropoietin, blood doping and testosterone. He is a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Medical and Scientific Commission, a member of the Executive Committee and Chair of the Scientific Commission of the International Sports Medicine Federation (FIMS), and has sat on two WADA committees. He is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and an expert committee pool member of the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).
Professor Pitsiladis is the founding member of the SUB2 marathon project: the SUB2 marathon project is the first dedicated international research initiative made up of specialist multidisciplinary scientists from academia, elite athletes and strategic industry partners with the aim to promote clean marathon running; high performance marathon running without doping. He is also the founding member of the Athlome Project. The aim of the Athlome project is to characterise the genetics and biology of sport and exercise medicine, as a platform to understanding healthy body function and major chronic disease conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, obesity and type 2 diabetes.
