Roger Enoka, PhD
Department of Integrative Physiology, University of Colorado Boulder

Research interests focus on the neuromuscular mechanisms in humans that are responsible for (1) the fatigue exhibited by children, individuals with multiple sclerosis, and older adults, and (2) sex- and age-related differences in the performance of functional tasks.

Benzi Kluger, MD, MS

Departments of Neurology and Psychiatry, University of Colorado Denver

Research interests include movement disorders, behavioral neurology and in the overlap of these two fields. Particular interests lie in the neurophysiology and treatment of non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, including cognitive deficits and fatigue.

Katrina Maluf, PhD, PT
Physical Therapy Program, Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus

Research focus is to identify mechanisms underlying psychomotor responses to stress and pain, and to apply this knowledge to the prevention and treatment of chronic pain disorders such as neck pain and fibromyalgia.
Current Funding: National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS)

Margaret Schenkman, PhD, PT
Physical Therapy Program, Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus

Research goals are to develop and test physical interventions for people who have neurological disorders such as Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, and critical care illness with polyneuropathy/polymyopathy. These interventions are based on conceptual models, integrating evidence with clinical reasoning.
Current Funding: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR)

Jennifer Stevens-Lapsley, PhD, PT

Physical Therapy Program, Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus

Research interests involve a multifaceted approach to examine the physiological basis for skeletal muscle dysfunction and weakness in older adults to optimize rehabilitation interventions. More specifically, research focuses on the cause of lower extremity muscle weakness that impairs functional performance after joint arthroplasty.
Current Funding: National Institute on Aging (NIA), National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), American Physical Therapy Association (CO Chapter), Arthritis Foundation
