The School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences is home to academic experts, dedicated professionals, and the future of sport, rehabilitation and exercise research.
Our academics carry out important research in areas of rehabilitation and sport science.
Our "Green Exercise" project has already shown that the environment you exercise in has an impact on mental health. Dr Mike Rogerson worked with Essex Wildlife Trust on a project focusing on volunteering outdoors. The project showed that outdoor volunteering can improve mental health in just six weeks.
Emeritus Professor Chris Cooper collaborated with the charity MS-UK to hold an exergaming event in our School, showing how we can utilise technology to help tailor therapy to individual patients with multiple sclerosis.
Our research is not just focused on young athletes. It has an impact on healthy ageing, the next generation, and mental health and wellbeing. Discover more about our staff and their research.
