Education and Training
Dr. Lanza has a Ph.D. in Neuromechanics from Loughborough University (Uk), a master's in Mechanical Engineering from Federal University of Minas Gerais (Brazil), and graduated from the Federal University of Acre (Brazil) with a BSc in Physical Education (2005). After that, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Federal University of Minas Gerais in projects involving understanding the neural and morphological adaptations after the training. Currently, Dr. Lanza has a fellowship from the University of Maryland Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training Fellowship (UMANRRT), and the main aim is to investigate the underlying neural and morphological mechanisms of falls after a loss of balance.
