About our research

The A-STEM Research Centre is split in to three research groups. The majority of our rugby research has been performance-focussed and has taken place within our Elite and Professional Sport (EPS) group. We also have staff from our Exercise, Medicine and Health (EMH) and Sport Ethics, Integrity and Governance (SEIG) groups working on health-related, philosophical and ethical projects in rugby.
