Abstract: The goal of this advanced rehabilitation research training (ARRT) project is to increase the number of postdoctoral engineers/scientists trained to perform research aimed at solving problems of persons with disabilities. This project trains six to eight scientists/engineers in three areas of expertise: Neurologic disorders, musculoskeletal injuries, and prosthetics and orthotics. Targeted technical, scientific, and clinical training are conducted through intensive clinical and scientific instruction and experience provided by the primary, secondary, and/or clinical mentors with relevant clinical/scientific expertise. Postdoctoral trainees are recruited using regional/national advertising in publications, web-advertising, and email list-servers with a strong effort focused on recruiting minority scientists, engineers, and/or individuals with disabilities to participate in the ARRTs training program.
