One of the core objectives at the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health (ISEH) is research to benefit the elite athlete and understanding how this expertise can be interpreted and used for the benefit of general public health.
Hence one of our research themes focuses purely on population health. This is a unifying concept, to gather data and research on the large-scale impacts of the many biological, behavioural and psycho-social processes that influence population groups over the course of a lifetime.
OUR CLINICAL RESEARCH FINDINGS HAVE GUIDED PUBLIC POLICY ON HOW TO IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF THE NATION
We are fortunate in that, at UCL, we have range of expertise in this area. Our experts have come together to form research groups that cover every stage of a person's life.
The ISEH has set-up a range of interdepartmental collaborations to understand the broader impact of exercise and activity, throughout a person’s life and for the population as whole.
