Christian Couppé is a senior researcher at Department of Physical Therapy & Institute of Sports Medicine - IOC Research Center Copenhagen, Bispebjerg - Frederiksberg Hospitals. He worked as a clinical physical therapist with the Danish National team in tennis and Sports traumatology unit & outpatient at Gentofte Hospital in 1995-2000. From 2001-2007 he worked as a clinician at Team Denmark (Olympic center) and obtained his Ph.D., at the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Copenhagen, 2010 (Human tendon loading, unloading, and aging, Advisors: Prof. Michael Kjaer & Prof. SP. Magnusson). His research focus is how tendon tissue adapts to injury/ disease, activity and aging from a clinical and basic scientific point of view; How we can use basic science and translate into the clinics and vice versa. He routinely gives lectures/ workshops abroad on how to manage tendon injury.
