Theresa Sukal Moulton, DPT/PhD ’12, has learned that life is all about timing.When she arrived at Northwestern University to pursue a master’s degree in biomedical engineering in fall of 2003, the Doctor in Physical Therapy and PhD in Engineering Program, of which she would become the first graduate, didn’t even exist.But while working in the lab of Jules Dewald, PT, PhD, chair of the Department of Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences (DPTHMS), as a graduate student, Sukal Moulton developed an interest in understanding what happens in adults following a stroke.With the defense of her dissertation, Theresa Sukal Moulton became the first graduate of the new Doctor in Physical Therapy and PhD in Engineering Program at Northwestern University. Sukal Moulton, who had been working as a pediatric PT at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, is now headed to Washington, D.C., to begin a post-doctoral fellowship in the lab of Diane Damiano, PT, PhD, at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The focus of research is to quantify muscle synergies and coactivation patterns under dynamic conditions in the upper limb following brain injury, in adults at the chronic stage of a stroke and in children with cerebral palsy.
