Research Labs

AiMS Modeling in Biology Project Department of Mathematics and Science Education

The AiMS Modeling in Biology Project is a National Science Foundation-funded research project shared between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama. The goal of the project is to develop teachers' capacity to teach challenging biology concepts using models and modeling.

Athletic Training Lab Department of Kinesiology

Host to both undergraduate and graduate courses in the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries including orthopedic evaluation, general medical evaluation, therapeutics, rehabilitation, and manual therapy.

Athletic Training Simulation Lab Department of Kinesiology

This lab is equipped with video cameras and state-of-the-art SimMan training mannequins to teach examination and treatment for athletic training situations.

Biomechanics Lab Department of Kinesiology

Equipped for investigating how human movement and body tissues are affected by mechanical physics and engineering principles, research in the lab focuses on performance improvement, injury prevention and assessment, and sport-related concussion.

Body Composition and Metabolism Lab Department of Kinesiology

Creating and disseminating knowledge regarding the importance of habitual physical activity/exercise and appropriate nutrition for optimal body composition as it relates to health status, with a special interest in aging and women's health across the lifespan.

Cognition and Skill Acquisition Lab Department of Kinesiology

Designed to conduct theory-based research that examines the effects of physical activity on cognitive function, our studies involve electromyography, electroencephalography, and event-related potentials.

Cognitive-Communication Rehabilitation Lab Department of Communication Sciences and Special Education

The Cognitive-Communication Rehabilitation Lab serves adults and adolescents with traumatic brain injury or concussion.

Exercise Psychology Lab Department of Kinesiology

Outfitted for research that focuses on the effects that physical activity have on mood, emotional responses and stress, our researchers also look at the effects exercise has on cardiovascular health.

Integrative Cardiovascular Physiology Lab Department of Kinesiology

The Integrative Cardiovascular Physiology Laboratory examines vascular function, with an emphasis on the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

Neuromusculoskeletal Health Laboratory Department of Kinesiology

This lab examines treatments and interventions to increase the muscle strength and physical activity levels of children and adults with cerebral palsy.

Non-Invasive Exercise Muscle Physiology Lab Department of Kinesiology

This 1,500-square-foot lab is dedicated to the development of new noninvasive methods of measuring skeletal muscle and blood vessel function. These methods are then applied to the study of how activity and inactivity influence the health of people with chronic diseases and injuries.

Physical Activity Measurement Lab Department of Kinesiology

The Physical Activity Measurement Laboratory specializes in the measurement of physical activity among diverse populations. We also can also provide help in selecting appropriate self-report measures of physical activity.

Sport Instruction Research Lab Department of Kinesiology

Offering hands-on research and skills-building for future teachers and coaches in sports, physical education and physical activity. Students take on research related to education and methods of teaching sport, while graduate students get hands-on training for future advanced study in sport teaching methods.

The PIPs Project Department of Communication Sciences and Special Education

The PIPs project will prepare highly qualified professionals to work with young children with complex needs and their families. PIPs scholars will receive interdisciplinary training through a variety of opportunities and experiences both on and off campus.

UGA Concussion Research Laboratory Department of Kinesiology

The UGA Concussion Research Laboratory is equipped to examine concussed patients from a variety of campus and community referral resources.
