The Department of Human Movement Sciences (College of Health Sciences) at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee is seeking motivated graduate students for our M.S. Kinesiology and Ph.D. in Health Sciences programs. These multidisciplinary programs provide instruction and research opportunities for students interested in studying the biopsychosocial aspects of human movement from the perspective of five sub-disciplines represented by faculty in the program (Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, Motor Behavior, Sport and Exercise Psychology, and Sociology of Physical Activity). Biomechanics and motor behavior laboratories include:

Neuromechanics Laboratory (www4.uwm.edu/neuromechanics)
-Stephen Cobb, PhD, ATC (Multi-segment foot model investigation of foot and lower extremity injury mechanics; Postural stability and lower extremity injury)

-Jennifer Earl, PhD, ATC (Role of the hip in knee injuries and rehabilitation, Patellofemoral pain)

-Kevin Keenan, PhD (Neuromuscular control of motor function)

-Kristian O’Connor, PhD (ACL injury mechanics; development of new motion capture technology for use in injury risk assessment)

-Jinsung Wang, PhD (Sensorimotor adaptation and interlimb transfer in healthy individuals and those with neurological damage)


Visuomotor Laboratory (www4.uwm.edu/visuomotor)
-Wendy Huddleston, PT, PhD (Cortical role in visuomotor coupling)


Pediatric Neuromotor Laboratory
-Victoria Moerchen, PT, PhD (Emergence of leg control in infants)


MOVE Center (www.move-chs.com)
-Yiorgos Papaioannou, PhD (Joint motion analysis using dynamic stereoradiography, joint modeling, human machine interface design i.e., sockets, pressure ulcer treatment mattresses, assistive devices)
