The Centre for Physical Activity and Health Research, based at the University of Limerick, conducts multidisciplinary and translational research in physical activity and health. A core health challenge today is the maintenance of health in an aging population and the long term health risks of inactivity. The centre’s mission is to improve health, well-being and quality of life in individuals via the application of knowledge of physical activity, movement and health for optimum daily living, occupation and sport.


The Centre for Physical Activity and Health aims to strategically enhance an existing network of successful partnerships between researchers from a range of disciplines who work within the domain of movement and health. The Centre is a collaboration of researchers from physiology, biomechanics, sports and exercise science, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychology, nursing and midwifery, medicine, electronic engineering and ergonomics.
