Rehab Rounds: Kristin Musselman

Dr. Kristin Musselman from John Hopkins University presents Optimizing Functional Walking after Neurological Injury: Split-belt Walking and other Novel Approaches on Tuesday, July 12, 2011 from 12-1pm. This event takes place at the room 140 of the Rehabilitation Sciences Building, 500 University Avenue.

Dr. Kristin Musselman received an MSc in Neuroscience and a PhD in Rehabilitation Science at the University of Alberta. She is currently a post-doctoral fellow at John Hopkins University. She did her undergraduate degrees in Life Science and Physical Therapy at Queen’s University. Kristin has been involved with research in motor control and neurological rehabilitation for the past seven years. As a post-doctoral fellow, she is studying how children with intact and injured nervous systems learn to adapt their gait when walking on a split-belt treadmill. She is working with a team of neuroscientists, clinicians and biomedical engineers to find innovative ways to maximize the rehabilitation potential of the split-belt treadmill. Kristin has been a practicing physical therapy for seven years.
