Welcome to the UCD Centre for Sports Studies, which is part of the School of Public Health, Physiotherapy and Sport Science within the College of Health Sciences. The Centre houses the academic programmes within the sports area and offers BSc and MSc awards in sports management and exercise science, taught by well-respected international staff.

Dr Brendan Egan is a University College Dublin (UCD) lecturer in sport and exercise science in the UCD School of Public Health, Physiotherapy and Sport Science, whose TEDxUCD 2014 talk is entitled 'Muscle Matters'.

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
