Karen Mullins PhD
Karen is a clinical researcher at UPMC Sports Medicine Clinic, who graduated in 2013 with first class honours in Sport Science and Health from the Institute of Technology Tallaght. Following this, she began her PhD research at Waterford Institute of Technology under the supervision of Dr. Michael Hanlon and Mr Patrick Carton. The project entitled, “Femoroacetabular Impingement: Injury etiology and performance outcomes following arthroscopic surgery” quantified the differences in performance measures such as sprinting and agility in athletes who required surgery for femoroacetabular impingement compared to healthy control subjects who played the same sports at the same level. Changes in these measures were tracked 12 weeks and 1 year following surgery. This project also assessed hip movements during 70-minute intercounty hurling games using 2D and 3D video analysis, to quantify the hip specific demands of the game.

David Filan, PhD
David is a Senior Clinical Research Assistant based in the Clinical Outcomes Department at UPMC Whitfield since 2015. He graduated with BSc in Biology from NUI Maynooth in 2010 and MSc in Applied Cognitive Neuroscience from Sheffield Hallam University in 2011 where he also worked as an Associate Lecturer thereafter. To date, his main focused area of research is within orthopaedics and in particular the clinical impact of arthroscopic management of patients treated for femoroacetabular impingement. He has published a number of peer-reviewed papers within this area and has presented findings from research conducted from The Hip and Groin Clinic, UPMC Whitfield at a number of national and international conferences. He is also an active Reviewer for AJSM and OJSM.
