Research Centers

Cognitive Imaging Research Center

Due to the joint efforts of the Departments of Radiology and Psychology, and support from the University, the Cognitive Imaging Research Center (CIRC) was created to expand human imaging science research and to promote the use of modern imaging methods in basic science and clinical investigations of the brain at Michigan State University.


Concussion Research Consortium

The Michigan State University Concussion Consortium is devoted to improving the prevention, evaluation, and management of sport-related concussion through research, education, and clinical practice.


Orthopedic Biomechanics Laboratories

The Orthopaedic Biomechanics Laboratories (OBL) is a unique research facility uniting the work of clinicians, engineers, and biologists dedicated to applied basic science research of the musculoskeletal system of humans and animals. We invite you to visit our facilities, meet our personnel, and get an inside look at our day-to-day activities in orthopaedic biomechanics.


Spartan Performance

The Spartan Performance Clinic is located in the Eyde building across from MSU Sports Medicine and co-located with MSU Rehabilitative Medicine near the campus of MSU. Our programs treat every athlete like a high-level performer, a D-1 or Olympic athlete, using state-of-the-art training and testing techniques and technology. Athletes undergo a complete testing battery before and after the completion of our science-based, world-class sport performance training programs designed and overseen by PhD sport scientists, sports nutritionists and other sports medicine experts. The director, Drew Coker, and the entire staff have several years of experience with university athletes, competitive adult athletes, and the child and adolescent athlete.
