The faculty in the Division of Physical Therapy are active in research. Much of the scholarship that is done is in collaboration with other departments on campus, supporting CHSP’s emphasis on interdisciplinary practice. Several of the physical therapy faculty work with their counterparts in engineering, biomedical sciences, exercise physiology, psychology, and athletic training. In 2011, faculty were very productive with 11 publications and $11.8 million in grants submitted. Many of the students who work in their research labs presented capstone research at the Combined Sections Meeting of the American Physical Therapy Association in February 2012. Below, you will find links to the Division of Physical Therapy research labs.
