Prof Kiros Karamanidis

Professor of Ageing and Exercise Science

 

Professor Kiros Karamanidis joined LSBU from the German Sport University Cologne (Germany) in March 2017 and is Professor of Ageing and Exercise Science at the School of Applied Sciences (Sport and Exercise Science Research Centre).

Kiros finished his PhD in Biomechanics at the German Sport University Cologne (Germany) in 2006 and worked as a Senior Lecturer and Senior Researcher at the Institute of Biomechanics and Orthopaedics, German Sport University of Cologne (from 2006 to 2012) and at the Institute of Movement and Sport Gerontology, German Sport University of Cologne (from 2014 to 2017). In between he was an Assistant Professor for Rehabilitation and Prevention at the Faculty of Mathematics and Technology, University of Applied Sciences, Koblenz, Germany (from 2012 to 2014).

Kiros' main research interest is focused on the plasticity of the musculoskeletal system in response to mechanical loading and exercise, and on the interaction between the neural and the motor system during functional activities such as walking and running.

  • 2017 - present: B.Sc. in Sport Sciences at the London South Bank University, UK: “Sport and Exercise Science”.
  • 2001 - 2017: M.Sc., M.A., B.Sc. and Diploma in Sport Sciences at the German Sport University of Cologne, Germany: “Human Technology in Sports and Medicine”, “Sport and Performance”, “Sport and Movement Gerontology” and “Sport Science”.
  • 2012 - 2014: B.Sc. in Physics and Medical Technology at the Faculty of Mathematics and Technology, University of Applied Sciences Koblenz, Germany:  “Sports and Medical Technology”.

Professor Kiros Karamanidis' main research interest is focused on the plasticity of the musculoskeletal system in response to mechanical loading and physical exercise, and on the interaction between the neural and the motor system during functional activities such as walking and running.

One of his main interests is to provide knowledge for researchers, clinicians and coaches working in the field of the adaptation of the muscle-tendon unit across the adult life span, prevention and rehabilitation of sport related injuries (e.g. ACL, tendon rupture) as well as in the dynamic stability control aimed on reducing the risk of falls in the older population.

He is an author and co-author of more than 50 peer reviewed publications and has more than 120-conference proceedings.
