The PhD in Movement Science is an interdisciplinary program designed to prepare students to be productive in research and to pursue a career in academia. The program offers training to investigators who seek to answer questions about human movement, its functions and dysfunctions. The program is organized around three core content areas: biocontrol, bioenergetics and biomechanics.
Motor Rehabilitation & Learning Laboratory
Focused on the study of humans from a mechanical perspective.
Sensory Motor Behavior Laboratory
The SMB lab conducts research on the planning and production of sequential and rhythmic movements, the role of social/contextual factors on characteristics of movement variability and potential therapeutic interventions for persons with movement disorders related to control of sequential and timed movement.
Sports Medicine Laboratory
This laboratory includes postural evaluation and aquatic rehabilitation and is available to serve all PhD students & Faculty.
