The Center for Recovery, Physical Activity, and Nutrition (CeRPAN) supports interdisciplinary research at UTMB focused on health promotion, performance, and rehabilitation research.

The Center is committed to creating relationships among basic, clinical, and translational scientists to apply research findings for the benefit of persons with disability, health inequities, and chronic disease across the lifespan and their families, caregivers, and communities. CeRPAN was 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 2022 to integrate research involving health promotion, performance, and rehabilitation research to provide new opportunities for clinical impact, education, and scientific training.
