Rehabilitation Science PhD students and Neuromuscular Plasticity T32 Trainees, Alison Barnard, Kelly Hawkins, Michael Sunshine, and Lauren Tabor, presented their research in six minute “data blitzes” as part of the annual Neuromuscular Plasticity Symposium. The T32 Neuromuscular Plasticity Training Program (NMPT) is an interdisciplinary pre-doctoral training program directed by Krista Vandenborne, PT, PhD, and co-directors Barry Byrne, MD, PhD, and David Fuller, PhD. The program emphasizes the interaction and joint training of rehabilitation clinicians and basic scientists with a common interest in translational research in neuromuscular plasticity and selects Trainees from a pool of outstanding students with diverse backgrounds.

The Trainees presented their data at the opening reception of the 12th annual NMPT symposium before UF faculty and distinguished guests including symposium speakers Joseph Jankovic, MD, Chet Mortiz, PhD, and  Craig M. McDonald, MD.
