About

The UAB/Lakeshore Research Collaborative is a partnership between two world-class organizations that focuses on research in applied rehabilitative science, including the development and evaluation of new programmatic and service efforts, the development and validation of new supportive technologies, and will seek to identify and develop meaningful alternatives that improve life for people who have or will face chronic disabling conditions.


The Collaborative will conduct and promote comprehensive rehabilitative science research to establish the effectiveness of current programs and services, and will seek better and more effective ways of improving the quality of life of a broadening array of individuals of all ages with physically disabling conditions.

 

Funded by an investment of $2 million from Lakeshore Foundation, in order to further its mission, the partnership will establish the Lakeshore Foundation Endowed Chair in the UAB School of Health Professions. A nationwide search is under way to recruit a leading expert in rehabilitative science to hold that endowed chair and serve as executive director of the research collaborative.
