Research Labs

AI for STEM Education Research

The foci of the AI4STEM lab is to conduct research in applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) to STEM education.

AiMS Modeling in Biology Project

Athletic Training Lab

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

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

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.

Brain and Action Lab

The Brain and Action Lab studies the behavioral and neural mechanisms of goal-directed movement, and how these mechanisms are altered in neurological disease or after brain injury.

Child Attention and Autism Research and Evaluation (CAARE) Lab

The CAARE Lab works to identify behaviors and movements associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and how they relate to each other. We also work to increase the global knowledge and understanding of ASD and disparities in services.

Child Communication Lab

The Child Communication Lab explores child language development and intervention to improve communication outcomes for children who are developing language typically, children with an increased likelihood for language disorders, and children with identified language disorders.

Children's Physical Activity and Fitness (CPAF) Lab

CPAF’s mission is to design and test innovative and sustainable solutions to improve population health in children and adolescents. We regularly collaborate with nonprofits and businesses to promote better health among diverse populations.

Cognition and Skill Acquisition Lab

Cognitive-Communication Rehabilitation Lab

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

Creativity and Imagination Lab

The Creativity and Imagination Lab explores an expansive array of topics in the multifaceted realm of human imagination. The lab’s resulting work and scholarship are relevant for diverse domains of basic and applied research.

Diagnostic Inventories for Cognition in Education (DICE)

DICE project researchers developed two assessments that target reasoning covered in the statistics and probability domains of most states’ middle grades math standards as well as in the Common Core State Standards. These assessments were designed to be truly formative, meaning they can be used by teachers and students during instruction to inform ongoing teaching and learning.

Exercise Psychology Lab

Generative Learning and Complexity Laboratory

The Generative Learning and Complexity Laboratory (GLCL) brings together scholars and practitioners of learning and complexity science to reimagine learning and development.

Georgia Educators in Mathematics and Science (GEMS)

Human Nutrition Lab

Our research focus is on the impact of different nutrients, diets, and/or exercise on energy metabolism and appetite regulation as it relates to weight management and chronic disease risk. We are particularly interested in the physiologic effects of dietary fatty acid composition on these markers of health. Our lab also conducts research on the impact of nutrients or supplements on athletic performance.

Innovative Technology in Addictions Counseling

Integrative Cardiovascular Physiology Lab

This lab examines vascular function, with an emphasis on the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

Neuromusculoskeletal Health Laboratory

Non-Invasive Exercise Muscle Physiology Lab

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

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.

The PIPs Project

Project BE-AHEAD in Georgia

This grant-funded project offers training in the areas of behavioral health and integrated care to student trainees in three graduate-level behavioral health programs: PhD in Counseling Psychology, MEd in Community Counseling, and MEd in School Counseling.

Project OASIS

Project OASIS, funded by HRSA, seeks to expand opioid and substance use treatment services in Georgia through enhancing community-based training for behavioral health students in these programs.

Project OCEAN

Project PEACH

The PEACH fellowship offers evidence-based training in the areas of behavioral health and integrated care to graduate student trainees in two nationally renowned doctoral-level behavioral health programs at UGA.

RAIL (Research and Innovation in Learning)

RAIL’s mission is to bring educational innovation to universal challenges by incubating ideas, innovating solutions, and impacting society.

Sankofa Research and Outreach

Secondary Science Teacher Education Research Lab


siSTEMas aspires to increase interest and engagement in STEM careers by opening access to STEM for all people by making a strategic effort to include underrepresented groups.

Sport Instruction Research Lab

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.

UGA Concussion Research Laboratory

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