The PhD in Health and Exercise Science expands your knowledge of specific areas of health sciences research, including cellular and systems physiology, intervention and rehabilitation and population health. Under the guidance of our faculty you will study the links between specialized sciences such as athletic therapy, molecular biology, neurology, nutrition and behavioural medicine. The program has a focus on prevention and supportive care. You will have access to Concordia’s PERFORM Centre and its unique, multiplex facilities.

PERFORM provides an exceptional environment for health research that combines a variety of methodologies under one roof. Current research topics include motion analysis, cardiopulmonary testing, clinical imaging, biological sample analyses and socioenvironmental diagnoses. Our researchers have access to a number of university-led research centres, such as the Centre for Structural and Functional Genomics, the Centre for Research in Human Development, and the Centre for Studies in Behavioural Neurobiology, as well as many offsite research units.
