Rebecca Gow: using bioengineering to study movement and injury prevention in athletes

UC San Diego bioengineering graduate student Rebecca Gow is currently working on a project to study movement competency in athletes, specifically female soccer players. Movement competency refers to how a certain movement or physical task is performed, and how it can correlate to injury. Gow, a student in bioengineering Professor Andrew McCulloch’s Cardiac Mechanics Research Laboratory, was particularly excited to contribute to this research since she’s been an athlete her whole life.

Today, the Joe and Clara Tsai Foundation announced the launch of the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance, a collaborative effort with six public and private institutions to transform global human health.

In partnership with Stanford University, University of Oregon, Salk Institute, University of Kansas, Boston Children’s Hospital, and University of California San Diego, we’re studying the key fundamentals of peak human performance and translating our research to be useful and accessible to optimize health for all people at all ages.

UC San Diego is honored to be a part of the team and look forward to seeing what we will accomplish! If you are interested in learning more about this effort or would like to get involved, check out the Human Performance Alliance website:
