The Biodynamics Laboratory

Our research opportunities are provided thanks to our state-of-the-art facilities in the Biodynamics & Human Performance Center.

As part of the program, you are mentored through the completion of an applied capstone research project. A majority of our students are involved with presenting research at national meetings:

  • American College of Sports Medicine
  • National Strength and Conditioning Association
  • National Athletic Trainers Association

Many of the research projects are submitted for publication in professional journals such as:

  • International Journal of Sports Medicine
  • Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research
  • Journal of Sports Sciences
  • Journal of Athletic Training
  • International Journal of Exercise Science

Having the experience of not only conducting a research project but also the opportunity and encouragement of taking the research completely through the dissemination (presentation and publication) process provides graduates an enhanced ability to evaluate research as it relates to future developments in sports medicine.
