“Emily is early in her career; however, has already developed a line of research immediately impacting rehabilitation and is well organized for sustained success,” Dr. Bialosky said.

This award recognizes physical therapists who have engaged in independent or collaborative research efforts within 10 years of completing their most recent physical therapy professional degree.

“She is passionate and dedicated to the profession of physical therapy, and to advancing the science of rehabilitation,” Dr. Fuller said. “She is deserving of this award.”

Additionally, Dr. Fox was recently named the director of Neuromuscular Research at Brooks Rehabilitation.

“I am responsible for the vision and oversight of this program at Brooks,” she explained. “This role is in association with my role an investigator in the Brooks-PHHP Collaboration. So, this role is synergistic.”
