Jason Franz Receives Grant from the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society

September 5, 2017

BME Faculty Jason Franz, in collaboration with UNC Healthcare and researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has been awarded an exciting new Research Grant from the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society. The project will leverage the BME Applied Biomechanics Lab’s virtual reality infrastructure to quantify standing and walking balance control and response to balance perturbations in people with MS vs. age-matched controls. The project’s long-term translational goal is to develop novel and more effective markers of balance and mobility impairment for the detection of disease onset and progression.

 

The BME Applied Biomechanics Lab was previously featured in UNC Healthcare News and is currently scheduled to be included in an episode of UNC-TV’s SciTech Now. Check back for more information on when you can catch the show!
