Doctoral training in movement science rehabilitation research
is offered by the Division of Physical Therapy, Department of
Rehabilitation Medicine, as an emphasis within the Neuroscience
Program, Graduate Division of Biological and Biomedical
Sciences, Emory University. The purpose of the training is to
prepare independent rehabilitation scientists through doctoral,
multi-disciplinary training in movement science. The movement
science program formalizes collaborations by a cadre of
scientists with expertise and interest in human movement,
movement-related dysfunction, and the effect of movement or
immobility on physiologic systems. This multidisciplinary group
includes physical therapist and physician faculty from the
Departments of Rehabilitation Medicine and Neurology and other
scientist experts from the Departments of Cell Biology, Biology,
and Physiology and from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Trainees may elect research training with any of these
scientists. The representative expertise of this faculty allows
study of basic mechanisms and clinical manifestations of
movement in animal and human models.

Training is supported by a grant to the Division of Physical
Therapy from the National Institute of Child Health and Human
Development, National Institutes of Health and by the Graduate
Division of Biological and Biomedical Sciences. Full tuition
and stipend support is available to trainees. Applications are
being recruited for August 1999 matriculation. The application
deadline for an August 1999 start is January 20, 1999. The
Principal Investigator for the training grant is Pamela A.
Catlin, Ed.D., P.T.; Steven L. Wolf, Ph.D., P.T. is co-Principal
Investigator and Richard L. Segal, Ph.D., P.T. is Assistant
Project Director. Further details may be obtained from the
