The Center for Recovery, Physical Activity, and Nutrition (CeRPAN) supports interdisciplinary research at UTMB.

The Center 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. 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 2013 to integrate research involving physical activity, exercise, function, and nutrition to provide new opportunities for education and scientific training.
