Ajit Chaudhari

Associate Professor, Physical Therapy, Biomedical Engineering, Orthopaedics, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering; Director of Diversity and Inclusion, School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences; Member, James Comprehensive Cancer Center

Dr. Chaudhari’s research focuses on the basic question: Can we better understand how movement-related injuries and diseases happen by studying the human body as a mechanical system? In particular, he is interested in the role of core stability in the prevention and treatment of injuries across the entire body; the mechanisms behind overuse running and throwing injuries; and the effects of chemotherapy, osteoarthritis, total knee arthroplasty, and lower extremity amputation on gait and balance.
