Research areas: 

Dr Elliott-Sale is the Head of the Musculoskeletal Physiology Research Group and a member of the Sport, Health and Performance Enhancement Research Centre. She has more than 20 years of experience working predominately with females, particularly with elite female athletes and maternal populations (e.g., postpartum women). She has an international reputation in female endocrinology and musculoskeletal physiology, as well as expertise in exercise physiology with specific regards to the design and implementation of exercise-based interventions. She has extensive experience in running research projects in sporting, clinical and academic environments.

Since the completion of her PhD, which examined the effects of female reproductive hormones on muscle strength, her research has concentrated on various aspects of health and athletic performance in female populations. She has the following main areas of interest:

  1. The effects of menstrual cycle phase an oral contraceptives on athletic performance
  2. Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport and the Female Athlete Triad
  3. Maternal Obesity: exercise and nutrition-based interventions for weight management during and following pregnancy
  4. Musculoskeletal Health and Metabolism: the bone metabolic responses to strenuous exercise and feeding


Our instructors are committed to your career development. Their courses are based on the latest scientific evidence while being directly transferable to your practice.
