Three professors from the Faculty of Health Sciences featured in Research Perspectives magazine
Blaine Hoshizaki, director and associate professor in the School of Human Kinetics, talks about his research conducted in the Neurotrauma Impact Laboratory (NIL) on the need for sports helmets. The helmets are put to the test and then data is collected and analyzed.
Tracey O’Sullivan, assistant professor in the Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences, in collaboration with Louise Lemyre, leader of an interdisciplinary team at the University of Ottawa known as GAP-Santé, is helping governments, organizations, businesses and communities plan for emergencies, from natural disasters to terrorism, based on the way people react in crisis situations.
Milena Parent, associate professor in the School of Human Kinetics, received one of the two Young Researcher of the Year Awards. Her research in the areas of sports management and community-based sports partnerships, which earned her this award, put her right in the middle of the action earlier this year at the Vancouver Olympics, where she was when the award recipients were announced.
