Research Labs

AI for STEM Education Center

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 conducts research to help grow autism knowledge and reduce stigma to promote a better quality of life for autistic individuals worldwide. We are interested in diminishing the disparities experienced by underserved families and increasing the quality of support for neurodiverse young adults in our community.

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.

The Collective Argumentation and Learning Coding (CALC) Project

The CALC project is a collaboration between faculty in the Mary Frances Early College of Education and the College of Engineering.

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

The Integrative Cardiovascular Physiology Lab aims to better understand the underlying factors that contribute to the disparities in the development of hypertension and cardiovascular disease across the lifespan.

Neuromusculoskeletal Health Laboratory

NewGen Psychometrics and Data Science Analytics (NPDA) Lab

The aim of our research lab is to revolutionize education through the synergistic application of data science, machine learning, and psychometrics in the field of educational measurement.

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.

The Pathway Project

The purpose of this project is to provide training to undergraduate and graduate-level students seeking certification and endorsement in the areas of Birth Through Kindergarten (BK) and Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) to support young children with high-intensity needs and their families across a variety of settings.

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.

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

Science Teacher Learning 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.
