Stefan Kluzek

MRCP DipSEM PGCert M.Sc. DPhil


Clinical Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Medicine

knee injuries, knee osteoarthritis; profiling and modification of risk factors

Stefan Kluzek is a senior Sport and Exercise Medicine (SEM) trainee with a clinical and research interest in knee injuries and metabolic dysregulation. Stefan's research explores the role of inflammatory pathways in a development of knee osteoarthritis. He is particularly interested in identifying the mechanisms leading to early cardiovascular mortality in knee osteoarthritis.

As a house officer in the Northern Deanery, Stefan was involved in setting up and running cardiopulmonary exercise lab and a research study looking at the exercise interventions in people with an established coronary artery disease. In 2010, Stefan started his SEM training in the Oxford Deanery, and in 2012, he commenced the M.Sc. programme in Musculoskeletal Sciences at the University of Oxford. During his masters, Stefan explored the evidence looking at the role of adipokines in promoting chronic inflammation in knee osteoarthritis.

In 2013, Stefan was awarded a competitive Clinical Research Fellow post within the Arthritis Research UK Centre of Excellence in Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis based at the University of Oxford. During the time in this post, he has been involved in the development of new Osteoarthritis research cohorts and biomarkers-based research and working synergistically between surgical, rheumatology and sports medicine research programmes. He also completed DPhil thesis looking at the inflammatory markers in cohorts at risk of developing knee osteoarthritis. From August 2016, Stefan has been employed as a Clinical Lecturer.  His clinical interests are in the fields of knee trauma, osteoarthritis, and musculoskeletal ultrasonography.
