The Centre brings together experts from around the region who specialise in conditions such as chronic disease, sports injuries and musculoskeletal health. These experts work together to treat and prevent injuries caused by exercise and to tackle conditions associated with a lack of exercise. They also contribute to the ‘exercise is medicine’ agenda – helping those with diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Alzheimer’s and Osteoarthritis to alleviate their symptoms through exercise and enjoy a better quality of life.
The NCSEM-EM is a joint initiative between Loughborough University, the universities of Nottingham and Leicester, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust and Nottinghamshire
Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
The Director of the NCSEM-EM, Professor Mark Lewis is Dean of the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences and is a leading expert in musculoskeletal biology.
