Leinster rugby link with DCU

DCU announces partnership with Leinster Rugby

A new partnership between the School of Human Health and Performance and the Ken Wall Centre of Excellence will allow opportunities to collaborate on applied research projects with the interdisciplinary team on Leinster Rugby’s player development pathway.

The aim of this research collaboration is to develop practical and useful information that can be used to improve practice within Leinster’s player development pathway. The partnership will also provide DCU students with further knowledge and skills to excel in their future careers in sports science and medicine.

Dr Siobhán O’Connor, Associate Professor in Athletic Therapy and Training, DCU “This new collaboration signifies both DCU's and Leinster Rugby's commitment to advancing the sport of rugby through cutting-edge research and providing unparalleled placement opportunities benefiting the club, players and students themselves."
