A/Prof Keogh is an exercise and behavioural scientist with a strong research and translation interest in the benefits of exercise and to a lesser extent nutrition in improving health and wellbeing in older adults, with prostate cancer survivors being of particular interest.  He has a H-index of 17, has supervised 20 RHD students to completion and currently supervises many other RHD students, three of whom are examining links between exercise and cancer survivorship.  He is an Associate Editor on the Journal of Cancer Survivorship and is also on the editorial boards of several international exercise science journals. According to Scopus, his 2012 systematic review on the benefits of exercise for prostate cancer survivors has already been cited 17 times.

As he returned to Australia in late 2011, his strongest collaborators are with New Zealand-based urologists, urology research nurses, exercise physiologists and behavioural scientists. In conjunction with Dr Patel and Prof Schofield, A/Prof Keogh has recently been awarded funding for an exciting project examining the benefits of the Man Plan survivorship program offered to patient using the hormonal therapy Lucrin. This project will also investigate novel dietary therapies that may reduce insulin resistance and delay progression into the castrate resistant phase. He collaborates with Australian-based cancer scientists/clinicians Prof Rod MacLeod and Prof Marion Gray and is forging new alliances with prostate cancer clinicians at hospitals in South East Queensland.
