Register now for Research, Athletics retreat
Building the foundation for a proposed Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior is the focus of an Aug. 23 retreat, Building Research Collaborations: UNL Athletics and Research, at Memorial Stadium’s West Stadium Club. UNL faculty are invited to attend.
The retreat is part of an emerging collaboration between Nebraska Athletics and UNL Research. This partnership has led to space allocation in the East Stadium expansion of Memorial Stadium for the Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior, nicknamed CB3, which will use cutting-edge imaging technology to better understand the biological underpinnings of behavior and performance.
Interdisciplinary research teams will work together in the new East Stadium facilities to address topics relating to health and performance, technology, nutrition, psychology and learning.
The registration deadline is Aug. 21. Schedule, registration and speaker information are available at the event website.
Attendees will learn about research facilities, including CB3 and the Nebraska Athletic Performance Lab, participate in discussions of future research activities and learn how to become involved in this partnership.
The keynote speaker is Douglas A. Granger, a nationally renowned expert in biomarker research. He is a professor of nursing and director of the Center for Interdisciplinary Salivary Bioscience Research at Johns Hopkins University.

- Tom Osborne, director, UNL Athletics Department
- Dennis Molfese, professor of psychology and CB3 director
