Back to Top Brian Noehren to Collaborate on NSF Grant

Congratulations to Dr. Brian Noehren, who is a Co-Investigator on a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant recently awarded to the College of Engineering.  Dr. Noehren will collaborate with Ruigang Yang, Principal Investigator (Engineering) and Rob Shapiro, Co-Investigator (Education). The team will develop and apply a single camera system to record 3D motion that will be used in clinical populations studied in the lab. This could have a transformative effect on the ability to quantify movement impairments in the clinic. In addition it would open up the availability of technology to rural hospitals and clinics rather than predominantly large institutions (i.e. UK).  The 3-year grant will begin October 1st. Total project award is approximately $565,300 ($396,000 in direct costs & $169,000 in indirect costs).
