The Life After Sport Trajectories (LAST) Lab at Marquette, directed by Dr. Jacob Capin, assistant professor of physical therapy in the College of Health Sciences, is investigating how collegiate athletics participation impacts long-term health and activity patterns in athletes and how traumatic knee injury impacts those outcomes.
The LAST Lab is recruiting both current and former college athletes (age 18-25 and 40-64 years old) and healthy matched controls. Testing consists of assessments of function, strength, body composition and cardiovascular health. Volunteers will receive a free, comprehensive health assessment and a $50 gift card.
More information is available on the LAST Lab website. This study is funded by Capin’s $1.9 million grant from the National Institutes of Health High-Risk, High-Reward Research program.
