Upward Bound Math Science Program visits our lab!

April 24th, 2018

The Upward Bound Math Science program at Boston University is a part of the federally funded TRIO programs, whose purpose is to prepare low-income and first-generation college bound students for success in higher education.

Over 3 days in April,  5 research labs at Boston University College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences: Sargent College and the Boston University Cognitive Neuroimaging Center came together to provide the UBMS students an exposure to cutting-edge research in biomechanics, rehabilitation, and imaging. It was amazing to work with these promising kids and we look forward to our future collaborations with the UBMS program!

We want to thank Neuromotor Recovery Lab , Human Adaptation Lab, STEPP Lab for Sensorimotor Rehabilitation Engineering, Motor Development Lab, and the Cognitive Neuroimaging Center for participating with us!

Summer funding from UROP for our researchers!

March 26th, 2018

Once again, our undergraduate students have shown outstanding success with 4 summer UROP awards! Congratulations to Bona, Dan, Tim, and Kaveh!

UROP's mission is to nurture curiosity, to capture imagination, and to cultivate relationships between faculty and students beyond the classroom to shape independent, innovative, and collaborative leaders. The UROP program supports undergraduate students engaged in research with faculty at BU.

A different kind of collaboration!

January 23rd, 2018

We requested faculty and students from the College of Fine Arts to help create a unique work of art for our lab using items leftover from the lab constructions. The art piece titled "Life Force" was installed recently. Prof. Lydia Musco and her students from Sculpture 2 class created this amazing piece!

In the words of the students -

"Life Force is a collaborative art installation created for the Movement & Applied Imaging Lab at Sargent College by the College of Fine Arts Sculpture II class led by Lydia Musco and assisted by Kayla Arias. Composed of two large wall panels, the project is a reflection of the lab’s scientific purpose: to encourage the repair of one’s “life-force” through the testing of joint agility. The piece was created by utilizing pieces of the hardware used to install force measurement instruments in the floor of the lab and incorporated conceptual ideas surrounding movement in the overall composition. Through weeks of collaboration, the students in the Sculpture class created an installation mirroring movement for the viewing of all who work in the Lab. This collaboration between Sargent College and the College of Fine Arts has been an incredible opportunity to merge the “East” and “West” sides of BU through the appreciation of art and community."
