Lucy Clark PhD
Research Associate

Lucy Clark is a Research Associate at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. She is a Sport and Exercise Scientist who has been researching into graded exercise therapy (GET) as a treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) since 1998, mainly undertaking treatment trials in primary care. Since joining Barts in September 2007 she has been undertaking a study looking at the immune response to exercise in patients with CFS/ME attending the CFS/ME service at Barts hospital. She is also the GET lead for the MRC-funded PACE trial which is led by Professor Peter White. Her main research interests continue to be in the area of exercise as a treatment for chronic illness, and particularly CFS.
