The week commencing Monday 18 April marks the start of a week of celebration and remembering the life and work of Professor Roger Woledge, 1938-2015.
Across the week, Dr Dylan Morrissey, and the Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine at QMUL, will be hosting three events which aim to gather people from various backgrounds and disciplines to share their work, learn about Sports and Exercise Medicine, and to further the research Roger was responsible for.
The week’s first event, held on Monday 18 April, ‘How Tendons Get Better: an inclusive debate’, is an evening conference fully focused on tendinopathy. This event will feature eminent speakers, including Professor Bill Vicenzino, who will share their work and thoughts on the topic, and will conclude with a debate among the speakers.
On Friday 22 April, the Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine will host ‘Muscles and Movement – a memorial meeting.’ Invited speakers will share details of their work with an emphasis on Roger’s contributions, providing time, space and opportunity to build future collaboration on the topics Roger was focused on.
The week will conclude with ‘The Roger Woledge Hackathon – Making Sense of Movement with the Virtual Professor’, on Saturday 23 April. The Hackathon will be an occasion to solve complex problems in a multidisciplinary environment with a focus on EMG, kinematics and kinetics.
