Back to Top Brian Noehren Receives NSF Grant

Brian Noehren and his collaborators received a three-year NSF grant along with computer and exercise science. The grant provides $300,000  in direct funding and $300,000 in in-directs. Brian is co-PI on the grant. It will provide funding for a post doc as well subject payment and development costs. 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 our ability to quantify movement impairments in the clinic. In addition it would open up the availability of technology that has previously only been available at large institutions like UK to rural hospitals and clinics. The grant is scheduled to start on October 1st.
