Research interests

My research interests have focused on cervical spine injuries, head protection, injury prevention and the epidemiology of injuries that occur in sport, work environments and when individuals are driving. Recent projects have involved mechanisms and prevention of cervical spine injuries, evaluation of head protection in hockey, football and cycling, injuries occurring in professional hockey, and the development of a computer simulation model for cervical spine injury prevention.

Professor Bishop is a member of several Technical Committees of the Canadian Standards Associations and an official Canadian delegate to the International Standards Organization Technical Committee on Protective Equipment for Ice Hockey.
