BIOMS GRADUATE PROGRAM | OUR MISSION
The mission of the Interdisciplinary Program in Biomechanics & Movement Science (BIOMS) is to advance the understanding of complex human systems through interaction of experts who cross traditional divisions of academic study. We strive to train outstanding researchers who will contribute to the advancement of health science through translational and interdisciplinary research. Research findings are disseminated through peer reviewed publications in high impact journals and presentations at national and international conferences.
The BIOMS Program was ranked 10th in kinesiology and exercise science programs in the Academic Analytics’ 2005 Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index, and by the National Research Council’s (NRC) latest assessment placed it among the top graduate programs in our field within the United States. The BIOMS program comprises faculty from the Colleges of Arts & Sciences, Engineering and Health Science who use an interdisciplinary approach to research and graduate education. Our graduate students work with their Academic Advisors to design individualized plans of study that cross traditional academic boundaries to suit the students’ unique academic and research interests.
