Postdoctoral Researcher in Neuromuscular and Skeletal Physiology, Manchester Metropolitan University

Dr Alex Ireland is a Research Associate within the School of Healthcare Science at Manchester Metropolitan University. His main research interest is in how the muscle and impact forces which squash, bend and twist our bones during movement end up determining their size and shape. This work has involved examination of a number of different populations from spinal cord injury patients to elite tennis players, and from toddlers to nonagenerian pole vaulters. Alex is currently employed on an MRC-funded project investigating how changes in our motor nerves affect our muscles and movements as we age.
