-Dr. Lynn Stothers, a urologist in the Department of Urologic Sciences at the University of British Columbia, has a grant to study the use of optical technology in monitoring pelvic floor muscle exercise in the neurogenic population. The project would be suitable for someone with a background in physical therapy with an interest in the bladder/incontinence/neurogenic disease. This was initially intended for a student starting a Masters program, but might also be appropriate for someone already enrolled in a Master’s program. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Stothers (see below). If you know of someone who might be interested, please pass this along.
