The Center for Clinical and Translational Science, or CCTS, at the University of Alabama at Birmingham has selected six 2022 awardees for its Multidisciplinary Pilot Program. Jaimie Roper, assistant professor in the School of Kinesiology and director of the Locomotor and Movement Control Lab, was selected for the program.

Roper and her students apply biomechanical and motor control principles to understand the control strategies of healthy and mobility impaired populations during gait. Then, they can develop novel and impactful rehabilitation interventions to improve physical function. Additionally, the lab uses clinical, engineering, exercise science and cognitive performance perspectives to better understand the neuromechanics of gait.

This year’s six new CCTS awardees seek to improve health and health equity in communities across the Deep South.
