About us

We apply epidemiology, biomechanics, physiology, psychology and social science to the study of sports injuries, and athlete health and welfare. Our aim is to understand and develop ways to reduce risk in sport.

Our main workstreams are:

  • identifying patterns and risk factors for injury, illness and harm in sport
  • developing and evaluating strategies to improve athlete safety and welfare
  • investigating and implementing athlete safety and welfare programmes in the real world
