Pitt launches new lab

PITTSBURGH -- The University of Pittsburgh recently launched a Warrior Human Performance Research Center at Hurlburt Field, Fla., to conduct performance-optimization and injury-prevention research. The new site is with the Air Force Special Operations Command. The 8-year-old program already has labs with the Naval Special Warfare SEALs operations at Little Creek, Va., Stennis Space Center, Miss., and Coronado, Calif., as well as the Army Special Operations post at Fort Bragg, N.C. The research centers help design physical-training programs to improve individual performance and reduce injury. (Source: Gant Daily, 02/20/14)
