The Department of Life Sciences recently hosted Dr Mark Geil from Georgia State University. Mark’s visit was funded through the Fulbright Specialist Programme and the International Office at the University of Roehampton. Mark visited the department for two weeks, delivering a number of lectures to both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Mark’s expertise on prosthetics and orthotics supplemented and enhanced the student learning by stressing the importance of exercise for people who have a range of disabilities and the practical implications involved in ensuring safe and effective participation. 

He also delivered a research seminar on idiopathic toe-walking in children to the Sport and Exercise Science Research Centre. The visit allowed the opportunity for Mark to explore the potential for an international exchange for students at the University of Roehampton and Georgia State University.
