Dr Pascale Kippelen
Reader in Exercise and Respiratory Physiology

Heinz Wolff 212


After completing undergraduate (BSc) and postgraduate studies (MSc and PhD) in Sport & Exercise Sciences (with a specialism in Exercise and Respiratory Physiology) in France - at the University of Strasbourg and University of Montpellier, respectively -, Pascale joined Dr Sandra D Anderson at the Dept of Respiratory Medicine, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney (Australia) to carry on post-doctoral training. There, she investigated the pathophysiology of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction in athletes and took part to phase III of the clinical trial for AridolTM/OsmohaleTM. AridolTM/OsmohaleTM is a bronchial provocation test aimed at diagnosing asthma patients and managing the condition.

In 2005, Pascale was offered a Lectureship in Exercise Physiology at the School of Medical Sciences, University of Aberdeen (UK). In 2008, she moved to Brunel University London to take up lectureship in Exercise and Respiratory Physiology. She was promoted Senior Lecturer in 2011, and Reader in 2020.

Pascale is a member of staff in the Division of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences (SHES). 


  • Pascale was the Co-Director of Undergraduate Studies in SHES from 2016 and 2020.
  • She acted as Deputy Divisional Lead between 2018 and 2022.
  • In January 2022, Pascale became Co-Director of the Centre for Physical Activity in Health and Disease (CPAHD).
