After studying medicine at Cambridge, Nicky was motivated to apply this understanding to sport & dance. Her clinical attachments include sports medicine clinics in Australia (Sydney, Olympic Medical Centre Melbourne, AIS) and University of Geneva. After passing MRCP she trained in Endocrinology gaining extensive clinical and reasearch experience. As a Research Fellow at St Thomas’ Hospital Nicky was part of the international medical team developing a test for GH doping in athletes. With sport medicine grants, she also researched training effects on the Endocrine system which resulted in research publications in Sports Endocrinology.
Nicky has written a series of blogs, specifically related to issues that will be presented at the conference. These are soon to be published via the blog page of the BASEM website.
