The NCSEM is an International Olympic Committee (IOC) Research Centre for the Prevention of Injury and Protection of Athlete Health, part of a worldwide network.

The network aims to develop long-term research programmes on injury and disease prevention including:

  • Consequences of sports injuries and sports-related illnesses
  • Pathophysiology, risk factors and injury mechanisms
  • Methods for sports injury and disease prevention

The research will be shared throughout the Olympic movement and wider sports community, with the ultimate aim of developing outcomes to protect the health of athletes.
