NMPT T32 Trainees Present Data Blitz

The Neuromuscular Plasticity Training Program (NMPT) T32 Trainees – Aaron Morton, Latoya Allen, Christopher Lacko, Alison Barnard, Kelly Hawkins, Michael Sunshine, and Lauren Tabor – presented their research projects the evening prior to the 12th annual symposium at a pre-symposium reception and data blitz. Each student presented a six minute “data blitz” and fielded questions and feedback regarding their research project. 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.
