Christopher Mullens, B.S.M.E., LocoLab research assistantChristopher Mullens, B.S.M.E., LocoLab research assistantResearchers in the LocoLab have decades of combined experience in researching locomotor impairments and walking dysfunction. And have been published in more than 10 peer reviewed journals. Here is a look at some highlights of our researcher's recently published works:
