Research at HHP

HHP boasts of world class research centers and a highly productive faculty that gives students a wide array of inter-disciplinary fields to work in.

HHP Research Centers

Laboratory of Integrated Physiology (LIP)
The Center for Neuromotor and Biomechanics Research (CNBR)

A brief description of each of these centers is given below:

The Laboratory of Integrated Physiology (LIP) is a fully equipped human performance/physiology/biochemistry laboratory capable of performing a wide variety of human performance testing, including exercise testing, muscle strength assessment, motor co-ordination/motor performance testing, learning/memory assessment and biochemical analysis of biological samples. The Athlete Assessment Center located in the Laboratory of Integrated Physiology provides various assessment services for athletes.

Control of posture and locomotion are complex functions that rely on coordinated interactions between the nervous system, the musculo-skeletal system, the cardiovascular system, and the environment. To study these functions, The Center for Neuromotor and Biomechanics Research (CNBR) brings together interdisciplinary research teams having expertise in engineering, physiology, clinical medicine, psychology, human factors, physics, mathematics, and computer science.
