The Institute for Sport, Exercise and Health (ISEH) together with the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine (NCSEM) has been named as one of nine research centres from across the world as an International Olympic Committee (IOC) Research Centre for Prevention of Injury and Protection of Athlete Health.
This accreditation, which was awarded as part of the ISEH’s role as one of the three National Centres for Sport and Exercise Medicine, was made to the ISEH alongside universities and specialist sports research centres worldwide.
The ISEH and NCSEM will be tasked with researching, developing and implementing effective preventive and treatment strategies for sports-related injuries and illnesses. It will receive financial support from the IOC and joins an international network of expert scientists and clinicians whose focus will be research into the prevention of sports injuries and optimisation of the health of our athletes.
As part of this award, The Eastman Dental Institute (EDI) and ISEH will set up a Centre for Oral Health and Performance.
