While many of the Rutgers University faithful are excited with the school’s recent move to the Big Ten Conference from an athletic standpoint, the move might be even more beneficial from an academic standpoint. After the inaugural Rutgers Human Performance Conference in March, buzz has reached all over the country because of the valuable assets it gives to students, athletes, coaches and trainers. Thus far, the Human Performance Laboratory has had a large impact on the department of exercise science at the university as well as the Rutgers athletic department. Shawn Arent, the director of the center, has been an integral part of the success and sees incredible potential with the facility moving forward. "We are just scratching the surface," said Arent. "It gives our students unprecedented access to work with athletes and interpret important data."
