Professor Juliette Hussey

Professor (Physiotherapy)

Professor Hussey has been in Trinity for over 25 years and was head of the discipline of Physiotherapy from 2003-2014. During that time she led on developing programmes in Physiotherapy and allied health sciences which are delivered in Singapore. She was elected to fellowship in 2011, promoted to associate professor in 2006 and to Professor in 2015. She served as Vice President for Global Relations for seven years ( 2014-2021). Professor Hussey is the research lead for the cancer survivorship theme in Trinity St James's Cancer Institute. She leads the Trinity Exercise Oncology Group-a group working in the area of exercise rehabilitation in patients with cancer. Her research is translational and is aimed at scientifically improving exercise prescription to optimise therapeutic responses. This includes evaluating means of improving physical capacity preoperatively to reduce postoperative morbidity for patients undergoing complex cancer surgery. A challenge in the area of exercise and cancer is to determine underlying mechanisms and her group is working with clinical scientists in this respect. Her current research in oesophageal, hepatopancreaticobiliary and thoracic cancer is funded by the Health Research Board and the Irish Cancer Society. Recently completed work in the areas of oesophageal and prostate cancer was funded by the Health Research Board and the World Cancer Research Fund. Professor Hussey has a strong publication record which numbers over 100 full paper publications. In addition, she has co-edited three books and 12 book chapters. In terms of research supervision, she has supervised 30 post graduate students to completion ( 9 PhD and 21 MSc).
