  Brief Portrait

Gregory Bogdanis is a Professor of Sport and Exercise Training at the School of P.E. and Sport Science of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Gregory has studied exercise physiology at Loughborough University, UK, (M.Sc. and Ph.D.) and has conducted post-doctoral research at the Department of Histochemistry and Metabolism of the Hellenic Sports Research Institute. He has received scholarships from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation, the British Council and Gatorade Sports Science Institute.

 His research work focuses on exercise physiology and muscle biochemistry applied to sport and exercise, as well as on applied sports nutrition. His recent work is on muscle adaptations during strength and power training, as well as on oxidative stress and inflammation during high intensity exercise and training.

 He has published more than 140 scientific papers in international journals and 11 books and book chapters. His citation index is >6400, with an h-index of 40 and an i10-index of 94. Gregory is a Fellow of the European College of Sport Science (ECSS), a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and President of the Hellenic Society of Biochemistry and Physiology of Exercise ( Also, he serves as Section Editor for the European Journal of Sport Science, Associate Editor (Physiology) & Special Issues Editor for Frontiers in Physiology, Regional Editor for “Biomedical Human Kinetics”, Editorial Board Member in “Sports”, “Children”, “Journal of Sports Science and Medicine” and Special Issues Editor in “Nutrients”, “Sports”

Main research interests:


  • Muscle metabolism, muscle fatigue and recovery during high intensity exercise training
  • Neuromuscular and functional adaptations to strength/ power training (focusing on plyometric and eccentric training to improve lower limb power) and flexibility (acute and long term effects in individuals of different age groups)
  • Oxidative stress, muscle damage and inflammation indices during acute exercise and training and their relationship to recovery.
