The NCSEM-EM is an Olympic legacy project aiming to translate high quality research in sport, exercise and physical activity into health outcomes that will improve the health and wellbeing of the nation.
We are collaborating across disciplines and institutions to provide an international centre of excellence for injury rehabilitation and to transform the way in which physical activity and exercise are used in the prevention, treatment and management of long term conditions.
The Centre’s research will focus on four key areas:
- Exercise as an intervention in the prevention and management of chronic disease
- Musculoskeletal trauma and exercise rehabilitation
- Exercise medicine for physical and mental health and wellbeing
- Nutrition: from healthy living to athletic performance
This research will be undertaken within the NCSEM-EM hub and at our partner universities and trusts. Translation of this research into education, training and clinical interventions is a unique focus of the NCSEM-EM.
