North West universities host showpiece research event

UCLan is teaming up with the University of Manchester during September to host a major Physiotherapy research event.

The International Patellofemoral Pain (PFP) Research Retreat and Clinical Symposium will see leading experts from around the world gather in the North West to discuss their latest research findings and review the science around the condition.

PFP is the number one injury in runners and one of the most common orthopaedic problems seen by clinicians. It is hoped the event inspires new collaborations, ensuring future research remains at the cutting edge in informing clinical practice.

UCLan's Professor James Selfe has organised the four-day conference in conjunction with Dr Michael Callaghan from the University of Manchester.

He commented: "I've worked in the field of Patellofemoral Pain for many years and I'm really pleased to be co-hosting this event. I'm particularly excited that the world leaders in the field will be coming to Preston to share their knowledge.

"This is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity for UK based Physiotherapists, Sports Therapists and Podiatrists, so I hope we will get a good turn out and give our distinguished international visitors a warm Lancashire welcome."

The Research Retreat takes place at the University of Manchester, September 2nd – 4th, whilst the Clinical Symposium will held be at UCLan on September 5th.
