From 2018 research of the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Active Living is located within the Institute for Sport, Health & Active Living.
The Clinical Exercise Science program conducts mechanistic, applied and clinical studies that support improved health outcomes.
Our innovative research leads the development of exercise interventions with wide application in best clinical practice, healthcare policy and funding.
We aim to accrue an evidence-base with broad application through the development, evaluation and translation of our research outcomes.
Our specific goal is to support pioneering approaches to exercise intervention that improve clinical outcomes, health, function, independence and quality of life.
The program brings together over 40 staff and higher degree by research students spanning a wide variety of disciplines including:
- exercise science
- biomechanics with a specific focus in clinical population research.
