Research into sport-related concussions

Extreme scientist Professor Damian Bailey, a former international sportsman and endurance athlete, leads the Neurovascular Research Laboratory at the University of South Wales.

One of his aims is to determine to what extent concussion accelerates brain ageing and susceptibility to neurodegenerative disease.

Damian is supported in his research by a number of Sport and Exercise Science graduates who are now studying for their PhDs.
