Biography Dr Arthur Bossi is a lecturer in sport, exercise, and health, teaching and supervising both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Arthur's areas of instruction include exercise physiology, the design and delivery of training programmes, as well as clinical skills. In his research, Arthur primarily focuses on unravelling the complexities of endurance training design for enhanced adaptive responses.

Since 2010, Arthur has undertaken a variety of cycling-related roles, including coaching elite mountain bikers and leading research projects. Countless hours spent in the laboratory testing and training endurance athletes have given Arthur a profound understanding of the athlete profiling process, a crucial step in developing effective training programmes. Currently, Arthur is tasked with optimising the sports science consultancy service, ensuring athletes benefit from the latest scientific breakthroughs in testing and training.

Arthur's scholarly work, especially his article 'Optimizing interval training through power-output variation within the work intervals', has received significant acclaim, with over 15,000 accesses on ResearchGate and mentions in media outlets like PezCycling News and Canadian Running Magazine. Arthur has also led one of the first-ever studies on cyclo-cross, filling a scientific void in this century-old cycling discipline. Furthermore, he published a groundbreaking study on the Cape Epic race, known as the 'Tour de France of mountain biking', in collaboration with the Estonian national mountain bike team’s coach. These initiatives underscore his innovative approach to research, ensuring a long-lasting academic impact and relevance for applied contexts.

During his NHS tenure, as a senior exercise physiologist in a prehabilitation service, Arthur supported over 100 cancer patients with fitness assessments, exercise training, and nutrition. The success of his tailored approach not only led to significant treatment benefits for patients but also encouraged many to adopt exercise as part of their healthier lifestyle post-intervention. This experience was pivotal for Arthur, as it now enables him to share these valuable lessons with students aspiring to develop a career in healthcare.

Going forward, Arthur aims to inspire the next generation by leveraging his extensive experience in both high-performance and clinical settings. He welcomes new collaborations and is particularly keen to mentor undergraduate and postgraduate students embarking on a research project.
