The Arthritis Research UK Centre for Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis is led by Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust in collaboration with Arthritis Research UK and is a consortium of seven Universities: Nottingham, Oxford, Southampton, Bath, Loughborough, Leeds and UCL.
The aim is to build a Centre of Excellence made up of a group of world-leading researchers in sport and exercise medicine and science, bone and cartilage biology, orthopaedics, rheumatology, nutrition, skeletal muscle biology, psychology, physiotherapy, podiatry, occupational therapy, medicine, epidemiology, bioengineering and physiology.
The Centre works with sports representatives, patients, the public and carers, in order to improve the understanding of the effects of sport and exercise on joint injury and osteoarthritis.
The Centre's research will lead to plans for prevention, assessment and treatment of injury, aimed at reducing the risk of later osteoarthritis.
