Sports and Exercise Research for Health & Wellbeing: The Clinical Potential of Environmental Stressors
The Health & Wellbeing Theme and the Department of Sport and Exercise Science (DSES) are delighted to invite you to our upcoming workshop entitled ‘Sports and Exercise Research for Health & Wellbeing: The Clinical Potential of Environmental Stressors’.
At this event we are looking to bring together colleagues from across UoP with an interest in health, wellbeing, science and exercise research. We will learn about the current work being undertaken examining the clinical applications of environmental stressors as well as the potential to expand this with our world-leading facilities and expertise in a wide range of academic fields.
We are also looking forward to welcoming collaborators from key local partners, such as Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, as we look to build strong interdisciplinary teams to ensure our research has clinical input and impact.
Throughout the event we will hear researchers from DSES describe the way in which they are applying their historic expertise in environmental physiology in a clinical context within the department and to identify areas of new collaboration. Current work in this area involves a variety of groups including individuals with Type 2 diabetes, cystic fibrosis, ectodermal dysplasia, raynaud’s phenomen, the elderly, and those who are overweight or obese.
We are also thrilled that guest speaker Prof Hugh Montgomery has agreed to join us and give a talk surrounding his fascinating work. Hugh is Professor of Intensive Care Medicine at University College London and also Director of their Institute Health & Performance. His research interests span critical care and the effect it has on the body, climate change and health impacts to human performance and hypoxic adaptation. Hugh has published over 400 papers, held high-profile fellowships from institutions such as the ‘Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine’ and ‘Royal Institution’ and was on the Scientific Strategy Group for the Caudwell Xtreme Everest Expedition.
Refreshments will be provided on arrival and lunch will be provided.
