Mark Goss-Sampson

Dr Mark Goss-Sampson

Principal Lecturer, Sports Sciences


Having gained a MIBiol in biochemistry and physiology at the University of London, Dr Mark Goss Sampson completed his PhD in neurophysiology and neurochemistry of experimental vitamin E deficiency in 1987. From 1988 to 1993 he worked at the Institute of Child Health as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and then non-clinical lecturer. In 1993 he joined the University of Greenwich as a Senior Lecturer in Physiology and was awarded a Principal Lectureship for Teaching Excellence in Sports and Exercise Science in 1999. In 1998 he was awarded a PGDip in Clinical Gait Analysis from the University of Strathclyde.
