Musculoskeletal Disorders, Environmental and Occupational Health Research
to our research lab...
Our research aims to conduct robust occupational and environmental health surveillance activities and provide rigorous scientific evidence about effective ways to reduce musculoskeletal disorders and improve the well-being of worker populations. We focus on finding ways to promote safe work practices, healthy behaviors and healthy work environments. We are especially concerned about redressing disparities in musculoskeletal disorder risk, whether by race/ethnicity, gender or occupation.
Research is led by Dr. Alberto Caban-Martinez, Director of the Musculoskeletal Disorders and Occupational Health Lab and Assistant Professor of Public Health Sciences in the Division of Environment and Public Health in the Department of Public Health Sciences, University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine. Dr. Caban-Martinez also co-directs the Miami Occupational Research Group (MORG) at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine.
