Seed Grant Awardee: Panagiotis Polygerinos

This project will focus on developing and evaluating a novel undergarment soft robotic lower-limb exosuit to: (1) provide advanced robotic assisted rehabilitation therapy to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injured athletes, (2) provide injury mitigation to athletes by increasing proprioception, and (3) provide resistance to athletes’ joints and muscles to explore the idea of a wearable muscle strengthening exosuit.

Seed Grant Awardee: Yezhou Yang

The overall goal of this GSI Sport 2036 seed project plan is to study and validate that both the athletes and the general public can benefit from using the low-cost camera-first and non-invasive performance tracking solutions.

Hydration status may differ between races. Hispanic and black adolescents have consistently higher urine osmolality than white adolescents, which indicates that this population could be more frequently dehydrated (Kenney et al. 2015). Dehydration, even moderately (1%), may lead to impaired exercise performance (Bardis et al. 2013).

Seed Grant Awardee: Kaila Ann Vento

Athletes competing at the collegiate level report a lesser quality of life compared to non-athletes. A deficiency in nutritious foods contributes to poor physiological health, however more information is needed about overall quality of life in relation to nutrition.

Seed Grant Awardee: Edward Vargas

The purpose of this research is to conduct a national online multi-racial survey on sports and race in America. Using critical race and racial threat theory, this study seeks to examine the relationships between public opinions in sports policy (views towards indigenous mascots, amateurism and athlete exploitation, doping, kneeling during the National Anthem...)

Seed Grant Awardee: Kenan Song

The concept of personalized medication according to a person’s physiological, genetical, and biological conditions is on the research agenda of pharmaceutical science. 1. Individuals respond differently to various medical cares, and they may experience more or less benefit/risk associated with particular drugs.
