Join us Thursdays at 3 p.m. MT. as speakers present their current research. See the topics below.
Join the Human Performance Lab (HPL) for biomechanics seminars. Each week a new speaker presents on their current research findings. Most of the researchers work in the HPL at the University of Calgary, but guest speakers from other universities do present occasionally.
The seminars are every Thursday from 3 to 4:30 p.m. MST (excluding holidays). The seminar series is in-person in KNB 214a and on virtual format (Zoom). See the list of presenters and their topics below. If you miss the seminar, no worries, all the seminars are recorded on video.
