The Center for Recovery, Physical Activity and Nutrition
(CeRPAN) in the School of Health Professions, is committed to creating
relationships among basic and clinical scientists to translate and apply
research findings for the benefit of persons with disability or chronic
disease and their families. Originally established in 2001 as the Center for Rehabilitation Sciences
to provide an infrastructure for research in disability, recovery, and
rehabilitation at UTMB, the mission and focus of the Center were
expanded in 2013 to integrate research involving physical activity,
exercise, function and nutrition to provide new opportunities for
education and scientific training.
