Cal State Fullerton is giving the public a look at its new Center for Sport Performance tomorrow with a free open house, lunch and presentation from Director Lee Brown, professor of kinesiology at the institution.
The center, which is made up of a collection of labs and faculty and is housed in the Kinesiology and Health Science building, takes a holistic approach to sport performance and is expected to help the university stay in the "forefront" of exercise research, said Shari McMahan, acting dean of the College of Health and Human Development.
The center's faculty members will be charged with conducting research into muscle conditioning, biomechanics, athletic training, sports psychology, sports sociology, motor learning and exercise physiology.
“The study of kinesiology is not just about improving athletic prowess, it’s about improving health, stamina and strength,” said McMahan. “Dr. Brown is a national leader in sports and conditioning research, and he will do a superior job leading the center.”
The event begins at noon tomorrow.
