MiPR awarded ESSI funding

MiPR was awarded funding from the Exercise and Sport Science Initiative at the University of Michigan. The project is a collaboration with the School of Kinesiology, the Biosocial Methods Collaborative, Michigan Medicine, and Michigan Athletics. The proposed project aims to look at injury resiliency in college athletes.

Development of a multi-level, systems-based model for injury resiliency at the individual and team level in collegiate running sports

Team: Richard Gonzalez (LSA, Stephen M. Ross School of Business, Institute for Social Research and CoE), Cristine Agresta and Jessica Deneweth Zendler (School of Kinesiology), Vineet Raichur (ISR), Jeffrey Housner (Medical School), and Bo Sandoval and Christina Fanning (Athletics)

Goal: Researchers aim to develop a multi-level, systems-based model for studying running-related injury predictions in collegiate runners. The proposed framework will facilitate the development of analytical models that can predict individual risk, as well as identify unique determinants that can and should be corrected to promote resilience.
