Dr. Richard Uwiera is a Professor within the Department of Agricultural, Food and Nutritional Science, a fully licensed veterinarian, and the University of Alberta (U of A) Veterinary Pathologist. He is also a Faculty member of Agricultural, Life and Nutritional Sciences with part-time secondment to the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry.
His research is focused on enhanced intestinal health and performance in livestock and understanding the pathophysiology of intestinal disease. Within the context of the SMART Network and in collaboration with Dr. Vivian Mushahwar, he explores the application of animal models to further scientific discovery. This includes the development of small and large animal surgical models and unique anesthetic and treatment protocols to investigate spinal cord and extra-spinal cord injury.
Dr. Albert Vette is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Alberta ( U of A), and a Research Scientist at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital in Edmonton. He also is a member of the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI) and an affiliate within the Department of Biomedical Engineering, which are both at the (U of A).
Dr. Vette and Dr. Rouhani are the co-directors of the Neuromuscular Control & Biomechanics Laboratory Their goal is to enhance the quality of life of aging individuals and those affected by movement impairments.
Dr. Vette's current research activities include the identification of active and passive mechanisms involved in human postural control, characterizing the role of sensory noise in sensorimotor speed of processing, establishing quantitative techniques for effective evaluation of rehabilitation outcomes and developing advanced assistive technologies for postural control using functional electrical stimulation.
Dr. Lindsey Westover is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. She leads a multidisciplinary research group integrating experimental, analytical, and computational techniques across a broad spectrum of biomedical engineering applications.
Dr. Westover’s research focuses in three main areas: (1) non-invasive evaluation of implant stability in osseointegrated implants, (2) tissue mechanics and musculoskeletal biomechanics, and (3) shape and geometry analysis in orthopaedic biomechanics.
