The primary objective of the Human Performance Laboratory (HPL) is to be the leader in both basic and applied research relating to human neuro - musculo - skeletal health and well-being, from birth to advanced age. The HPL is represented by full-time and adjunct faculty members with varying research backgrounds and scientific interests, all focused on the same common goal. From anatomy to muscle mechanics, from physiology to motor control, from biochemistry to biomechanics, from the molecular level to the person as a whole, all aspects are explored in an integrated and multidisciplinary approach.
The facility and laboratory space were generously designed to allow for the expansion of personnel and research interests. The equipment and computer facilities are unparalleled. The HPL provides international flavour with the constant presence of students, fellows, and professors visiting, studying, and participating in collaborative research from around the world.
