Center for Human Performance Research (CHPR)


  • Padmini Rangamani, Ph.D., Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
  • Samuel Ward, PT, Ph.D., Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Radiology


Center Statement


Center for Human Performance Research (CHPR) under the Institute of Engineering in Medicine (IEM). CHPR will foster new collaborations between UCSD faculty, neighboring institutes, and industry, focusing on the integration of engineering principles and technology with elite human performance. The CHPR will work closely with the Triton Athletics program to develop and apply novel approaches to improve our understanding of training, performance, and recovery using quantitative tools such as biomedical imaging, genetic, and epigenetic engineering, molecular, cellular, and tissue engineering, advanced biomaterials and nanobiotechnology, systems biology and medicine, and medical devices to advance prevention, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of injury and to maximize performance.
