Dr David Muggeridge

Lecturer

Biography

I graduated from my undergraduate B.Sc with Honours in Sport Science at Kingston University in 2011. I went on to complete my Ph.D in Exercise Physiology at University of the West of Scotland in 2015, investigating the influence of dietary nitrate supplementation and UV-A light exposure on parameters of exercise in healthy adult males. Postdoctoral and research fellow positions followed in the area of cardiovascular and digital health with focus on measurement, physical activity and exercise and their relation to human physiology.

I am currently a Lecturer in Exercise Physiology at Edinburgh Napier University. I am part of the sport, exercise and health research group and teach across the sport and exercise science programmes. I am the module leader for Intermediate Exercise Physiology (Level 9) and contribute to Foundations of sport and Exercise science (level 7), Introduction to Exercise Physiology (level 8) and Advanced Exercise Physiology (Level 10).

Variability in nitrate-reducing oral bacteria and nitric oxide metabolites in biological fluids following dietary nitrate administration: An assessment of the critical difference

Journal Article
Liddle, L., Burleigh, M. C., Monaghan, C., Muggeridge, D. J., Sculthorpe, N., Pedlar, C. R., …Easton, C. (2019)
Variability in nitrate-reducing oral bacteria and nitric oxide metabolites in biological fluids following dietary nitrate administration: An assessment of the critical difference. Nitric Oxide: Biology and Chemistry, 83, 1-10. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.niox.2018.12.003
There is conflicting evidence on whether dietary nitrate supplementation can improve exercise performance. This may arise from the complex nature of nitric oxide (NO) metaboli...
