Julian Owen

Lecturer in Sport & Exercise Physiology, Bangor University

After several years of working as an applied sport scientist within various performance pathways and professional sports, I gained my PhD from Bangor University and have since led several research projects within the field of sport and exercise medicine. My main research interests lie in sport injury epidemiology and the prevention and diagnosis of sport-related brain injury, with a particular emphasis on the community rugby union setting. In addition, I contribute to research focusing on talent and long-term athlete development predominantly in rugby union.
