Our Sport and Exercise research is dedicated to providing expertise that is relevant to the broader community and undertaking work that has direct practical impact. To achieve this we have high-level engagement with other researchers as well as high performance sports teams, government organisations, schools and health professionals.
Our research looks at exercise as a panacea to a wide variety of problems relating to health and human performance. We use a multi-disciplinary approach to examining these problems and aim to provide authentic solutions that can be used to provide the evidence-base for best practice in sport, exercise and health professions.
