Senior Lecturer in Health and Exercise, Kingston University.
Dr Moir has a research and teaching background in health, exercise and sport sciences. Her main interests lie in the influence of exercise on the immune system, and previous research has investigated the role of inflammatory protein production and its role in conditions such as childhood obesity. She is also pursuing her interest in clinical conditions and exercise prescription for inflammatory conditions such as diabetes and arthritis and is investigating the role of nutritional supplements and rehabilitation techniques on muscle damage and inflammation.
Dr Moir was much in demand during the London 2012 Olympics. Her knowledge from researching rehabilitation following sports injuries and sports training stood her in good stead to comment knowledgeably. She is also able to explain and give background information surrounding the use of performance-enhancing drugs, or doping.
Hannah is a very experienced media commentator in both national newspapers and broadcast media.

Hannah is able to talk in general to media about sport and exercise related injuries and rehabilitation. She is also able to comment in general about issues around doping - but cannot comment on individual scenarios. She has commented widely in the national press and has appeared in broadcast media footage.
