Overview

Dr Alistair Monteyne graduated from Loughborough University in Sport & Exercise Science in 2015, before completing an MSc in Sport & Exercise Nutrition at the same institution. Following this, Alistair took a PhD position in the Nutritional Physiology Research Group (NPG) at the University of Exeter, under the supervision of Professor Benjamin Wall and Professor Francis Stephens. Alistair was awarded his PhD in 2021 for the thesis entitled “Mycoprotein & Skeletal Muscle Anabolism”, which characterised the effect that the alternative protein mycoprotein has on muscle protein synthesis rates and muscle mass, in both young and older individuals. Following his PhD, Alistair undertook post-doctoral training within the NPG, investigating the role of energy intake in the progression of the sarcopenic process, and the underlying physiology of acute exogenous ketosis and how this might modulate postprandial metabolism in metabolically compromised individuals. Alistair joined the Department of Public Health and Sport Sciences at the University of Exeter in 2023 as a Lecturer in nutritional physiology, and his current research considers how significant reductions in body mass might modulate muscle protein turnover and energy expenditure in the context of obesity.
