The Institute of BioMedical Research and Epidemiology of Sport (IRMES), at the service of High Level Athletes
This host team (EA 7329) is developing national and international study programs focusing on four major fields of investigation: the pathophysiology of sport, the epidemiology of performance, experimental physiology and prevention through physical or sports activities. It also reinforces the actions carried out by the INSEP Medical Department concerning the prevention and monitoring of high level athletes.
The IRMES creation responds to the will of giving new impetus to the development of the knowledge in medical research applied to sport. The work of IRMES contributes to reinforce the excellence and the influence of INSEP in the areas of sports performance and medical monitoring of athletes in France and around the globe.
Our missions :
• Sports data bases constitution: The aim is to create and develop a database around sport involving life trajectories, training, injury, performance and other criteria specific to each discipline.
• Epidemiological and biomedical research conduct: Produce, publish and disseminate scientific knowledge around sport. We develop epidemiological and biomedical research designed to detect major trends, in order to help coaches, health professionals, physical trainers and teachers in their decisions.
• For Sport: research to identify the major performance parameters.
• From Sport: research based on sports performance that enable the understanding of the Human capabilities, in all its activities.
• Researcher training: Support and train professionals from different backgrounds: engineering, sports, medical ...
• National and regional research and teaching network animation : Strengthen the place of sports medicine in France, including seminars, conferences and conference cycles organization as well as the results publication in relation with the French Society of Sport Medicine (SFMES).
Our research axes and themes:
The IRMES opens new researches lines devoted to the scientific analysis of the physical or sports practices context and mobility, both for their potential risks and for their health benefits. The question of growth dynamics and optimization cycles is approached from this angle.
