Though graduate and professional schools prioritize fieldwork involving direct interaction with patients, the College of Public Health also encourages interested students to reach out to faculty researchers.
The college has more than 15 research centers and labs, including
- the Sport Concussion Laboratory, which is headed by Ryan Tierney, a member of the Kinesiology faculty. The group researches the long-term neurological and behavioral effects of concussion injuries.
- the Visual Environment and Postural Orientation Lab, where researchers help balance-impaired people address their condition through the use of virtual reality technology.
