2024 Frontiers of
Human Performance

 July 14-19, 2024 | Grand Teton National Park


This conference will welcome visionary faculty from biomechanics, computer science, neuroscience, design, and medicine, and graduate students and fellows who are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of health and human performance research. Our goal is to break the traditional mold for meetings, and embark on an adventure of discovery and learning through lectures, discussions, mentoring activities, and outings in the beautiful Grand Tetons. We hope to seed novel research, build friendships and collaborations, and inspire the next generation of leaders and innovators.
