The Centre for Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis Research Versus Arthritis is the UK’s first research centre bringing together experts in orthopaedics, rheumatology, sport and exercise medicine, physiotherapy, podiatry, epidemiology, nutrition, sports science, skeletal muscle biology, bone and cartilage biology, psychology, physiology and biomechanics, from seven internationally renowned research institutions, to properly understand the relationship between exercise, sport, injury, rehabilitation and osteoarthritis.

The Centre’s researchers hope to gain better insight into the development of osteoarthritis following sport and exercise injury, leading to effective prevention and treatments for the general public and sports professionals alike.
