Bill McIlroy PhD
Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging
As director of the Neuroscience, Mobility and Balance Lab (NiMBaL), Bill McIlroy's research focuses on: 1) advancing understanding of how the brain and other parts of the central nervous system control movements of the body, and 2) translating knowledge to help individuals improve their recovery after a neurological injury (such as a stroke) and to minimize age-related effects on the control of mobility. Bill's research team also works to develop new assessment tools using wearable sensor technologies. His research is conducted in university-based labs, in clinic-based labs and in the community.
