Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.

Dr Lathlean’s research focuses around musculoskeletal and neuromuscular health and how this impacts on performance. He is interested in the effects of load on musculoskeletal injury as well as athlete availability and preparedness and the role this plays on performance. His PhD focused on the epidemiology of sports injury in elite junior team sport, where he carried out a prospective longitudinal study with 562 male football players across 9 under-18 clubs. Dr Lathlean’s research focuses on development pathways in elite team sport, from an ecological as well as individual athlete perspective and how environmental physiology (altitude and heat training) can impact on the athletic population. Dr Lathlean is currently collaborating with a range of practitioners, focusing on male and female team sport, particularly in relation to injury. Clinically, Dr Lathlean is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP), helping patients prevent and manage chronic disease as well as helping to identify, prevent and manage injury through appropriate strength and conditioning. After being invited to several post-polio syndrome conferences, Dr Lathlean has maintained an active interest in post-polio syndrome, as an expert of exercise-based interventions for this population and maintains several active collaborators with medical and allied health practitioners in the field of neuromuscular research.

Technical expertise: Dr Lathlean has expertise in project management across observational studies as well as secondary research. He is skilled in piloting of various health-based interventions and has proficiency in both sports-based and health-based technologies.

Dr Lathlean is currently available for potential HDR projects within the areas of exercise physiology, sports performance and neuromuscular health.
