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.

Dr Naylor continues her research into childhood obesity, and now has expanded her research area to include adolescents with Type 2 diabetes.

Dr Naylor is funded by a BrightSpark Foundation Fellowship to expand her work in this area.


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