Personal profile


Dr Naylor's research focus is on cardiovascular adaptations to exercise training, and application of this work to optimise clinical outcomes for "at risk" populations, with an emphasis on adolescents with type 2 diabetes.

Dr Naylor has worked with elite athlethes and chronically ill individuals (for example, patients with advanced heart failure, obesity and adolescents with type 2 diabetes) to generate a multifaceted understanding of cardiac and vascular exercise physiology. She is also involved in basic science research to add further mechanistic insights into the regulation of the cardiovascular system.

Dr Naylor completed a undergraduate degree, with a taste of research during a Honours year at UWA in 2000. After a short break, Dr Naylor completed her PhD in 2006. Her research focuses on the optimisation of exericse for individuals, actross a variety of clinical groups, with an emphasis on cardiovascular and metabolic adaptations to exericse. 


Can exercise training improve health in adolescents with type 2 diabetes?
