Research in PM&R

Our research cuts across diverse disabilities and conditions and addresses improving clinical outcomes and quality of life through new medical, behavioral and technological adaptations.

The Department of Physical Medicine conducts both clinical and basic science research.  Our mission and purpose is to develop effective solutions to maximize health, function, and quality of life of people with physical and cognitive disability across the lifespan through clinical and translational research as well as teaching and mentoring the next generation of scientists.

Currently, we are involved in a number of exciting projects that promise far-reaching effects, including projects with a focus on physical activity, metabolism and energy consumption, spine health and spinal cord injury, adapted neuropsychological assessment, pain management, cerebral palsy, neuropathies and balance, and health issues concerning women with disabilities.
