Our team is on the cutting edge of research in sports training and injury prevention. Each year, our projects are featured in several scientific, medical, and sports journals. We work closely with other scientists, doctors, therapists, and graduate students to better understand human performance and reduce the risk of injury to participants of all ages and abilities.
