UCLan Sport Exercise and Nutritional Science is part of The School of Sport and Wellbeing at the University of Central Lancashire.
The Division is led by Dr Steve Atkins and focuses on the key general area of sport and exercise performance. We are highly research active, collaborating with top industry bodies and academic institutions from around the world.
Sport and exercise science research has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. We currently have seven professors/readers and over 100 research students, as well as a significant number of research fellows, and research active staff.
We work alongside world-leading organisations such as the Football Association, Professional Golfers' Association, the International Olympic Committee and the UK's Rugby Football League.
Working closely with global academic institutions, industry bodies and private and public sector organisations, ensures that sport and exercise science research activities are internationally-oriented, highly applied in nature and focused on achieving quantifiable impact and outcomes.
