My name is Alexis Henderson, and I am a Junior majoring in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Arizona. On campus, I volunteer in the Arizona Simulation Technology and Education Center (ASTEC), work as an Athletic Training Technician with McKale Center, and perform research. I have been researching biomechanics with Dr. Kristen Renner for over a year, and participated in the Undergraduate Biology Research Program through her lab during the past summer. In the lab, I use motion capture to gather kinetic and kinematic data on human movement, which can then be analyzed and applied to predict injury risk. My main focus is applying this knowledge to athletes, as my goal is to enter an MD/PhD program to become an orthopedic surgeon with a sports medicine emphasis. This summer, I will be researching abroad in Canada with the BRAVO program, investigating injuries in disc golf athletes, and how studying their full-body mechanics can prevent further damage. I am very excited to learn more about the field of sports medicine and apply my skills as a future surgeon and researcher to help athletes prevent and recover from injuries.
