Dr Richard Bruce

Senior Lecturer in Cardiorespiratory Physiology

Biography

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.

Dr Bruce’s research interests include examining the neural control of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems during exercise, and how this may be altered by chronic disease and contribute to breathlessness and exercise intolerance. Alongside colleagues at Oxford, he is also interested in the development of new technologies that can non-invasively monitor cardio-respiratory function.
