Eimear Dolan & Brian Saunders

Eimear completed her undergraduate and postgraduate studies in sport and exercise science in Dublin City University, Ireland. She then worked as a Sports Nutrition lecturer in the Robert Gordon University, Scotland, before moving to Brazil to do a postdoctoral research project. Currently, she is a member of the Applied Physiology and Nutrition Research Group of the University of São Paulo, and leads a research program investigating how exercise and nutrition influence bone, which is funded by the Sao Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP). Her research interests include pH regulation and high-intensity exercise performance (including the use of buffering supplements such as beta-alanine); the influence of low energy availability on health and performance, and bone metabolism.

Bryan studied in the UK with Craig Sale at Nottingham Trent University, UK. He then moved to Brazil to work as a postdoctoral researcher at the School of Physical Education and Sports, USP, Brazil. In 2017 he joined the University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil as a researcher at the Faculty of Medicine. Bryan’s work has been largely around buffers, including beta alanine which he will talk about today and his work has not gone unnoticed. He has written several outstanding papers and reviews and he has received several awards for his work. Besides his research passion, Bryan can often be found on a bike and recovering with a beer afterwards. That passion for beer must be part of his Belgian heritage.
