Ohio Musculoskeletal and Neurological Institute
To improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of musculoskeletal and neurological disorders. OMNI has strong programmatic efforts across several research programs with concentrated focus in: 1) musculoskeletal pain and injury (primary focus on rehabilitation), and 2) healthy aging (primary focus on frailty and fractures). The research across these programs has an overarching aim of developing interventions and diagnostics that remove barriers to independent physical mobility and ultimately reduce disability.
Our multidisciplinary research team draws widely on expertise in many fields, including neuroscience, skeletal muscle physiology, gerontology, musculoskeletal disease, functional biomechanics, health psychology and behavioral medicine.
Our research facilities are spread across the campus of Ohio University, home to dozens of centers, institutes and facilities that advance world-class research, scholarship and creative work. The institution ranks in the top tier of universities nationally for research return on investment.
