Researcher Profile

Brian Noehren, PT, Ph.D.

Brian Noehren, PT, Ph.D.Brian is originally from Trumbull, Connecticut. He got both his bachelors and master degrees from the University of Connecticut. After graduating, he practiced outpatient and acute physical therapy for four and half years at a regional hospital in Virginia. He then pursued his Ph.D. in Biomechanics and Movement Science at the University of Delaware. He joined the faculty at the University of Kentucky in 2009. His research is focused on understanding the mechanics of common lower extremity injuries. Through an improved understanding of the underlying causes of these injuries, he hopes to be able to develop more effective treatments. When not engaged in research, he enjoys all things involving the outdoors, running, and spending time with his family.
