Tuesday, May 30, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Room: Hotel-Centennial Ballroom A
The Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics is a forum to foster the growing interest in scientific work that bridges the fields of Motor Control and Biomechanics.
The Symposium is organized by the ISB Working Group in Motor Control and brings together internationally renowned speakers to introduce their work on the understanding of Motor Control in Biomechanics for a wide range of applications including Sports Medicine, Exercise Physiology, Rehabilitation, Kinesiology, Modeling and more.
- The use of surface EMG in understanding voluntary muscle function: Insights from the work of Dr. Travis W. Beck – Dr. Matt Stock (University of Central Florida, USA)
- Perturbation of habitual joint movement paths affects extrinsic foot muscle metabolism, motor control and neuromuscular fatigue in cyclic exercise – Dr. Gert-Peter Brüggemann, (German Sport University Cologne, Germany).
- Examining movement coordination and it’s variability to understand pathological gait – Dr. Katherine Boyer (University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA)
- When self-selected running form is not preferred – Dr. Bryan Heiderscheit (University of Wisconsin, USA).
- Neural Adaptations of motor unit firing behavior compensate for muscle fatigue – Dr. Joshua C. Kline (Delsys Inc., USA)
- Myosin heavy chain influences firing rate behavior from moderate to high intensity targeted forces – Michael A. Trevino (University of Kansas, USA)
Who Should Attend: Researchers and students with an interest in Biomechanics and Motor Control should attend. Participants will have the opportunity to discover the latest developments at the intersection of these fields and discuss with experienced investigators.
Registration: Attendance is free for ACSM attendees. If you would like to attend, please register at http://www.mcg.isbweb.org/registration.html

Today the convergence of science, technology and sport is moving forward more rapidly than ever before, and as a result, new and interesting ways in which nutrition and well-being impact performance are being uncovered. This session will review emerging research in three areas of athlete health: gut health, vitamin D and concussion prevention and provide insight on what this means for today and tomorrow’s athletes.
- Looking for the Edge: Gut Health and Athletic Performance – Nic West, Ph.D., Griffith University
- Vitamin D: Are We Measuring it Correctly? – Graeme Close, Ph.D., Liverpool John Moores University
- Nutrition Supplementation and Concussion Prevention – Jonathan Oliver, Ph.D., CSCS, USAW, Texas Christian University
- Practical Applications – Trent Stellingwerff, Ph.D., FACSM Canadian Sport Institute Pacific

Graduate and Early Career Day Preconference and Lab Fair
Tuesday, May 30, 3:00 – 7:00 p.m.
The Graduate and Early Career Day Preconference and Lab Fair is designed to provide career guidance for graduate students and early career professionals. The session kicks off with a keynote address, then will offer breakouts in three lecture tracks – each with its own specific focus: Academic Careers; Clinical Careers; Professional Business and Industry Careers. Students can listen to the journeys and advice from these speakers, as well as participate in the question and answer period. To help promote career networking after the breakouts, students will have a unique opportunity to chat one-on-one with 20 different universities. Learn about the labs, make connections with the schools, and discover postdoctoral opportunities. Click here to download a copy of all of the laboratories participating. A light reception will coincide with the networking portion.
This event is open to all attendees, but is targeted to graduate students and young professionals in the early stage of their career. This event is free as part of your ACSM registration. If you plan on attending, please check the appropriate box on the registration screen.
