Much of the ISEH’s clinical work focuses on performance, outcomes and early intervention in athletes and in sport as a whole. Up to now many of the interventions in sport and exercise medicine, particularly drug-related and surgical interventions for injuries, have up to now relied on a limited evidence base.

Our basic science work, including research in extreme environments, is largely led by Monty Mythen, Hugh Montgomery, Dan Martin and Mike Grocott. It encompasses both genetics and epigenetics, as well as basic physiology, hypoxia and extreme environments. It includes the Xtreme Everest 2 project, now based at the ISEH and incorporating a hypoxic chamber, and the Discovery Lab.
