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).

2014 International Sports Science Symposium

Our International Sports Science Symposium went off without a hitch! We had some great keynote speakers and researchers from around the world for the event, perfectly coinciding with the World Junior Track Championships. We are excited for future opportunities to hold similar events for students, academics, and clinicians alike! We hope to continue keeping symposium registration at a minimum with the help of our sponsors such as Tekscan and the NeuroSpine Institute. There are bound to be other high profile track and field meets at Hayward Field and it’s possible we will hold another scientific meeting in the future! In the meantime, check out this promotional video!
