Our work ranges from movement impairment to elite sports performance. Our research focuses on the musculoskeletal system, and the way it integrates with human movement.
We apply techniques from a range of different academic disciplines, ranging from physiology, biomechanics, psychology, engineering, computer science and cell biology to understand and refine human movement.
Our research is organised across three themes:
- Movement impairment – research that targets a number of important clinical conditions such as diabetes, stroke, osteoarthritis, Parkinson’s, dystonia, myositis, muscular dystrophy and developmental coordination disorder.
- Musculoskeletal function in health and ageing – providing world-leading research in musculoskeletal function across the lifespan.
- Sports medicine and elite performance – research that aims to determine the factors that underpin optimal performance in athletes.
