Simon Lack

BSc, MSc, PhD

I completed my Physiotherapy BSc at Brunel University in 2005, followed by my MSc in Sports & Exercise Medicine at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) in 2011, and have been building my clinical academic career ever since. I completed my PhD in 2017, with a thesis entitled 'the interaction of hip and foot biomechanics in the development and management of patellofemoral pain'.

I have continued to work clinically throughout my academic career as a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist at Pure Sports Medicine, where I am also Head of Research. I am also Head of Medical Services for the elite scholarship athlete programme at the University of East London.

‚ÄčI currently lead the MSc in Sports & Exercise Medicine at QMUL, where I aim to combine my clinical and academic experience to help guide the delivery and development of the programme. My main research interests centre on the assessment and delivery of targeted interventions, through a greater understanding of treatment effect mechanisms, for common knee complaints and in particular, patellofemoral pain and patellofemoral osteoarthritis.
