The Medical Rehabilitation Research Speaker Series provides an opportunity for selected NCMRR and NIH rehabilitation research grantees to share their research with colleagues from rehabilitation-related and other fields.

This third session features NCMRR grantees Martina Mancini, Ph.D., and Lynn Worobey, Ph.D., D.P.T., A.T.C., presenting their advances in the fields of assistive and rehabilitation technology.

Dr. Mancini  is an assistant professor of neurology at the Oregon Health & Science University and one of the directors of the university’s Balance Disorders Laboratory. She studies how to improve everyday functional mobility and prevent falls with rehabilitation interventions that use a variety of body-worn sensors to characterize movement and brain activity.

Dr. Worobey  is a research assistant professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Pittsburgh and a research scientist at the Veterans Affairs Health Services Research & Development Center of Excellence. Her research focuses on enhancing independence and participation of individuals who use assistive technology as well as minimizing secondary injury.

Series events will include presentations from the grantees followed by a question-and-answer session.

Individuals who need reasonable accommodations to participate in this activity should contact Eliza Polk at or 301-242-0003 at least 5 days in advance.
