Kylie TucjerWe are a group of human movement, rehabilitation and clinical researchers who provide new insights into the development of neuromotor control through childhood and adolescents, the changes in movement control that occur in response to pain, and the patterns of movement control that may predict the development of painful musculoskeletal conditions.

The lab head is Dr Kylie Tucker, who can be found on Twitter at @KylieJ_Tucker.

Kylie is a senior lecturer in the School of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine @ UQ. She is passionate about working with great people who are excited to learn more about movement control and to share this knowledge.

We are recruiting volunteers to participate in the following studies. Please email the staff member listed for more details.

Our lab is dynamic with some full-time staff, fabulous national and international collaborators and a large number of PHD, honours and undergraduate students who come and go depending on the project stage. Our team is ever-changing, so listing them would mean that this website would always be out of date!
