The USC Biomechanics Research Laboratory is an interdisciplinary research and teaching facility located on the University Park Campus (UPC) of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California under the direction of Professor Jill L. McNitt-Gray, PhD.  Our research team uses experimental and dynamic modeling approaches to advance our understanding of control and dynamics of movement under physically challenging and contextually relevant conditions. The BRL@USC is affiliated with the Department of Biological Sciences and Biomedical Engineering, the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum, and actively collaborates with the Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center and the United States Olympic Committee.
