Sam in Japan

In October last year, Jim’s former PhD student, Dr Sam Gleadhill packed his bags (and family) and relocated to Kanoya, in Japan. This was due to taking up a role at the National Institute for Fitness and Sport (NIFS). Being there a year, the Gleadhill family have experienced all seasons, and loved the four of them. They even regularly receive falls of ash from the nearby volcano, Sakurajima…

Around the time of leaving, Sam also applied for the very prestigious Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Fellowship. Earlier this year, he was notified that he won it. Sam’s Fellowship is based at NIFS where he is primarily researching the effects of resistive training on sprint running. A CDU media release about Sam can be seen at this link – Sam at NIFS.
