Organisation profile

PAHRC is a research centre within the Institute of Sport, Physical Education and Health Sciences in Moray House School of Education which aims to provide evidence of how to encourage people of all ages to ‘sit less and walk more’.

Increasing physical activity and reducing sedentary time are major public health goals. Our vision is to become an internationally recognised centre of excellence in the field of physical activity for health. We seek to create an active research environment that will inform teaching (particularly the new MSc in Physical Activity for Health) and knowledge exchange in related areas.
