Dr Kirwan is very interested in all aspects of how the food consumed can affect health and performance.
Much of his research has focused on protein metabolism and how it leads to the preservation and augmentation of muscle mass along with the role of obesity in the development of other disease states.
His current research focuses on the effects of high-protein, Mediterranean-style diets along with resistance training in cardiac-rehabilitation patients in order to see how an increase in muscle mass (and decrease in the level of sarcopenic obesity) will affect future risk of cardiovascular disease.
