Loren is an Assistant Professor and Director of the Neuromusculoskeletal Mechanics Research Program at the University of Alberta.
Loren’s research integrates the fields of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics to study human performance.
Current research investigates the generation of muscle strength and its role in multi-joint movement.
Loren has also conducted extensive research in the areas of:
- Analysis and optimization of multi-segmental motor skills
- Acute responses and chronic adaptations to resistance training
- Transfer of training to motor skill performance
In a addition to research, a major component of the NMRP is knowledge translation. This includes the training of high-performance athletes, performance assessment and evaluation, and injury consultations. The success of the program is due to the interaction of research and practice to drive scientific innovation.
