National Centre for Sport & Exercise Medicine


The National Centre for Sport & Exercise Medicine (NCSEM) is an Olympic Legacy Project, originally funded by a £30 million grant from the Department of Health to Sheffield, Loughborough (East Midlands) and UCH/UCL (London) centres. NCSEM resources now include: NHS clinical and research facilities in three community leisure centres across Sheffield; a programme of conferences and seminars that bring together researchers with common interests to stimulate and support collaboration; a network of active researchers nationally and regionally in the field of physical activity and health.  

NCSEM Sheffield is a partner in CLAHRC-YH and we have a number of joint projects completed, underway or planned.  A recent study with CLAHRC YH explored the analysis of physical activity in people with chronic conditions using the NIHE CLAHRC YH Yorkshire Health Study.
