Alex Scott

Dr. Alex Scott’s research targets a widespread problem — overuse injuries and chronically painful tendon disorder in workers and athletes. His laboratory is examining the biological and biomechanical responses of tendons to mechanical loading and/or injury.

His research has been supported locally by organizations including WorksafeBC and the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research; nationally through CFI, CIHR, NSERC and the Physiotherapy Foundation of Canada; and internationally through the Canada-Scandinavia Foundation, the Swedish Research Council, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, and the Physical Medicine Research Foundation. His work has been incorporated into a widely used web-based clinical guideline (UpToDate©).
