Dr. Daniel Benoit

University of Ottawa

Dr. Benoit is a Full Professor at the School of Rehabilitation Sciences, cross appointed to the Department of Mechanical Engineering and School of Human Kinetics, and is a member of the Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Biomedical Engineering (OCIBME). He received his PhD in Surgical Sciences from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm Sweden in 2005 under the supervision of Dr. Per Renström. A former member of the International society of Biomechanics Executive board, his research interests include identifying the role muscles play in stabilizing joints during functional tasks, and how this is affected by neurological and musculoskeletal disorders. His current collaboration with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario seeks to improve assessment, treatment and rehabilitation outcomes following knee injury in youth.

Dr. Ryan Graham
