HART member, Geoff Middleton worked alongside two former colleagues Markos Klonizakis and Ahmad Alkhabit (Sheffield Hallam University) to produce a further publication in Microvascular Research Journal. The paper presents data from a small intervention trial studying the effects of the Mediterranean diet and exercise on the efficiency of the microcirculatory system in older adults. This new article explores the long-term physiological changes in the same group of research participants, one year on after initially attempting and completing an 8-week dietary and a moderate intensity exercise regime. You can find details of the publication here.
