Our research vision is to create, disseminate and curate world-leading knowledge in Sport, Physical Education and Health Sciences. Our research addresses four main themes: human performance science, physical activity for health, physical education and sport.
We have 35 members of staff who are active researchers. From the REF 2014 results, we ranked 1st in Scotland and 10th in the UK. We engage in division-crossing, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaboration with colleagues across the School and University, and in other institutions within Scotland and internationally. For example, we held a series of workshops which involved monitoring young racing drivers, from around the world, provided them with invaluable practical experience.
Our research mission is to advance, explore and enable research in Sport, Physical Education and Health Science. Find out more about our research through the links below to our research centres, groups and networks sites.
