Sport and Health Sciences

Research is organised into two interdisciplinary research groups: Bioenergetics and Human Performance, and Physical Activity and Health Across the Lifespan. These groups focus on enhancing human health and performance and conduct research in the laboratory and through field studies. This world-class research impacts positively on the health and well-being among a range of populations, as well as enhancing sport performance at all levels. Bioenergetics and human performance Physical activity and health The Bioenergetics and human performance research group adopts integrated physiological, psychological and biomechanical lines of enquiry to enhance human performance. Research specialisms include muscle metabolism and oxygen uptake, lower limb injury mechanisms, and cognitive and psychosocial determinants of human performance. The Physical activity and health research group links pre-clinical laboratory and fundamental research with epidemiological and intervention studies to enhance our understanding of the relationship between physical activity and health . One focus is on the precise measurement of physical activity to enable better quantification of movement and its relationship between physical activity and health. In addition, the Children's Health and Exercise Research Centre (CHERC) is devoted to the study of the exercising child and adolescent and to the promotion of young people's health and well-being, whether in relation to sport or clinical patient group
