A busy summer at the BSSC wraps up, and a new school year begins!

We had a busy summer at the BSSC, full of new scientific findings, clinical breakthroughs, and collaboration with both the scientific and running communities!

A number of individuals have graduated, including two graduate students (one PhD and one M.S.) who have taken full-time positions in the sport science industry. In addition , a number of undergraduate students received their degree and moved on to exciting jobs or graduate school.

Our group also traveled to Taipei, Taiwan and Raleigh, NC for international and national biomechanics conferences. Many podium and poster presentations were given, and lots of fun was had!

Finally, we were able to do some exciting work within our clinic, including a pole vault analysis and sprint analysis on some top local athletes. As summer ends and fall begins, we welcome new graduate and undergraduate students, and look forward to continuing to maximize our clinic’s performance (while limiting injury).

This year we have a number of changes as we say goodbye and good luck to some while welcoming new grad students including a visiting scholar, post-doctoral candidate, and doctoral student! With that comes new research projects and a need for more undergraduate help and mentoring opportunities. Many changes and exciting things happening this year!
