UCL Division of Surgery and Interventional Science


Sport and Exercise Medicine Group

As the principal sports medicine Olympic legacy project in London, our key aim is to translate what we know through research on elite athletes into public health benefits for the wider population. In addition to our sports medicine and population health expertise we have leading imaging, laboratory and clinical facilities housed at the Institute of Sport, Exercise & Health.

Our research themes are divided into several areas:

  • Physical activity and health - focusing on epidemiology, health benefits, and promotion of physical activity at a population level
  • Sports injury and musculoskeletal pathology – general and elite populations 
  • Sports medicine – focus on concussion, and health and wellbeing in athletes
