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 comprises faculty from the Colleges of Arts & Sciences, Engineering, and Health Sciences who use an interdisciplinary approach to research and graduate education. The BIOMS Program was recently ranked among the top graduate programs in its field in the United States, according to the latest assessment by the National Research Council (NRC)

Our graduate students choose one of fives Areas of Study that cross traditional academic boundaries:

  • Applied Anatomy and Physiology
  • Biomechanics
  • Cytomechanics
  • Motor Control and Behavior
  • Clinical and Translational Science.

Each student works with his or her chosen faculty advisor to design a Plan of Study of unique academic and research interests. Our students have gained research experience through involvement in over $30 million in federally funded research projects; and through interaction with a variety of interdisciplinary research groups.

We invite you to explore our program and discover the rich and diverse opportunities we offer!
