The center will house researchers from a mix of disciplines. Organizers talked about some of those research topics during the groundbreaking.

 

"We're interested in developing adaptive technologies and rehabilitation strategies that can support athletes with special needs. There's a lot of work to be done here and this facility will allow us to move forward with these types of projects and many others," said Jeanne Hossenloop with Marquette.

The space will also include locker rooms and support space for the lacrosse programs and golf teams, along with strength and conditioning spaces.
