Dr Bailey is a Research Fellow in the School of Nursing Midwifery and Social Work and leads the Physiology and Ultrasound Laboratory in Science and Exercise at the University of Queensland. As an exercise physiologist, his research focuses on understanding changes in cardiovascular control across the spectrum of healthy ageing and chronic disease. He also aims to understand the potential benefits of exercise training on cardiovascular health in women, and adults with chronic disease, including patients with cancer. This includes current local and nationally funded exercise trials in patients with breast, gynaecological and prostate cancer. To do this, Dr Bailey implements a variety of novel ultrasound imaging techniques for the assessment of vascular function and structure, including at the brain, heart, conduit and micro-vessels. As CI, Dr Bailey has secured ~AUD$2.5 million in competitive funding, including a MRFF funded ACUMEN trial which aims to understand the physical benefits of exercise therapy in women following treatment for gynaecological cancer.
