Siobhan Schabrun, PhD
Professor, School of Physical Therapy
Siobhan Schabrun is the incoming William and Lynne Gray Endowed Research Chair in Mobility and Activity and Professor in the School of Physical Therapy. Her research program is focused on understanding, treating and preventing persistent pain – a major cause of reduced mobility and activity amongst otherwise healthy individuals and those living with musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. In addition, Professor Schabrun explores the use of non-invasive brain stimulation technologies to boost neuroplasticity and improve outcomes following traditional forms of rehabilitation such as exercise, functional electrical stimulation and virtual reality training. Professor Schabrun is passionate about improving the translation of research evidence into practice and about promoting the participation of women and girls in science.
