University of Exeter teaming up with Manchester United

The University of Exeter has teamed up with Manchester United for a unique research project that hopes to discover the effects of exercise on the hearts of young people.

Footballers from Manchester United’s Academy are having their hearts monitored by Exeter University's state-of-the-art imaging technology to see how the hearts of young people work while exercising.

The partnership plans to investigate fitness levels of three hundred young people, a hundred born with heart conditions, a hundred children and adolescents with healthy hearts and a hundred elite junior athletes from the Manchester United Academy.
