Dr Richard Bruce undertook his PhD in Human Cardio-Respiratory Physiology at the University of Birmingham, and much of his post-doctoral research was conducted at the University of Oxford. He took up the post of Lecturer at King’s College London in 2017 and is the programme lead for the BSc in Sport and Exercise Medical Sciences.
