BIOMS DIRECTOR’S WELCOME
The Interdisciplinary Program in Biomechanics and Movement Science (BIOMS) includes faculty from three colleges: Health Sciences, Engineering, and Arts & Sciences. These faculty 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: (1) Applied Anatomy and Physiology, (2) Biomechanics, (3) Cytomechanics, (4) Motor Control and Behavior; and (5) 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!
