The Division's Dr Jonathon Sinclair and Dr Steve Atkins, in conjunction with Dr Paul Taylor (UCLan Psychology), have confirmed a joint research paper has been accepted by The BMJ.
The paper is the result extensive work between the trio, and highlights the cross-school collaboration between The School of Sport, Tourism and The Outdoors and The School Of Psychology.
Dr Sinclair said: "This is a paper we've been working on for quite some time and the journal is extremely prestigious. The paper looked at tendon forces in military recruits.
"Achilles tendon injuries occur frequently in military populations as they do a lot of running as part of their training. Through this work we hope to be able to provide mechanisms by which the forces applied to the tendon can be reduced, thus reducing the risk from injury."
