Faculty at Radford University Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program contribute to the scientific foundation of physical therapy practice by conducting studies that improve our knowledge and understanding of human movement and control, physical function, and disability across the lifespan. Program Faculty conducts and participates in collaborative and interdisciplinary research relevant to physical therapy in the clinical and basic sciences. Faculty research is conducted in a variety of locations including three core research laboratories housed within the DPT Program itself, some research facilities outside the Program as well as in a variety of clinical settings. In addition to core research facilities, Program faculty collaborate with other scientists both regionally and nationally to conduct interdisciplinary and translational research. Our faculty routinely presents their research findings in scientific publications and at local, national, and international conferences.
