Title: Optimising Performance: Success for our athletes, health for our nation
Date: Tuesday, 10 July, 2012
This event explores how to optimise elite performance in sport and how medical research can translate to both the critically ill and those in high level sport. It will also look at how exercise can maintain health, prevent disease and limit the impact of chronic conditions.
Chaired by Professors Fares Haddad and Monty Mythen, this panel discussion includes Sir Clive Woodward (Director of Elite Performance, British Olympic Association), Dr Mike Loosemore (Team doctor, Great Britain Olympic boxing) and UCL's Professor Hugh Montgomery and Professor Mike Grocott.
UCL's Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health has been set up through collaboration between UCL, University College Hospital (UCH), The British Olympic Association and the English Institute of Sport.
