Our goal is to advance a better understanding of the incidence, risk factors, prevention techniques, and long term health outcomes for sports related injuries sustained by U.S. high school and adolescent athletes.
Dr. McGuine has taken an active role in developing and facilitating novel research methods to allow for effective prospective data collection and analysis in field (sport) settings. At the University of Wisconsin, he established The Wisconsin Sports Injury Research Network, through which a team of licensed ATCs and coaches collect prospective research data in diverse high school and club sport settings. To date, this program has recruited and enrolled over 16,000 adolescent athletes from 112 different high schools and club sport settings to serve as research subjects for numerous cross sectional, cohort, and randomized control trials.
