Exercise science begins two-year project

A unique performance heath research opportunity has come to campus, resulting in a collaborative project for the Department of Exercise Science through the fall of 2017. Performance Health Systems, LLC awarded Swapan Mookerjee, professor of exercise science, a two-year research contract that provides more than $20,000 worth of equipment and logistical support to the department’s physiology laboratory along with the provision for a graduate assistantship, which was made possible with matching funds from the university.

“This project provides us a unique opportunity to conduct research, which will culminate in faculty-student collaborative presentations, papers and masters theses,” Mookerjee said. “The equipment is currently mainly available in clinical sites across the country.”

Graduate and undergraduate students will be involved in all the research projects, according to Mookerjee, who added these types of collaborative projects typically result in conference presentations, papers and thesis projects.

Cahill earns EWL Freshman of the Week

Husky Sports

Bloomsburg University's Tanner Cahill has earned Eastern Wrestling League Freshman of the Week honors after scoring a victory for the Huskies at Clarion last week. Cahill's pin at 133 pounds over Clarion's Sam Sherlock put the Huskies up early in their dual with Clarion. The pin gave Bloomsburg important bonus points that proved pivotal in the thriller that came down the wire, but Clarion ultimately edged the Huskies on criteria (T, 19-19). The pinfall victory was the fourth win by pin for Cahill during his time as a member of the Huskies.
