MOVCENTR: Creating an infrastructure and expertise to explore the mechanisms of human movement.
The researched is focused on variability related to movement disorders. The scientists in the MOVCENTR use methods with many interacting parts to study the the cause and effects of diseases. Through research, creation of assistive devices, and nonlinear analysis, our scientists are able to study interventions and recommendations for rehabilitation processes and clinicians.
The COBRE funds four research projects and two to three pilot projects at a time. When a research project lead graduates from COBRE funding and receives independent funding, such as an NIH R01, a new research project is created.
The MOVCENTR has funded six research projects, two faculty recruit projects, and 11 pilot projects. These projects have cumulatively funded over 100 faculty, students and staff over the past four years.
Six research projects are being carried out under the Center umbrella. These projects address different motor related disorders and are led by junior investigators. The expertise of these junior investigators spans the continuum from engineering to physical therapy.
