Professor and Grad Chair, Exercise Science and Athletic Training

Title

Undergraduate and graduate students are involved in many of the current projects and have worked on many of the past projects.  Graduate student thesis work is also done in the Biomechanics Lab. Some projects are done as part of a research team class and others as independent study.  Some students are also funded through work study, the Dana Scholarship program, or through external grants.  Many students have presented their work on various projects at College, Regional, or National Conferences.
