Bio

 

RobRoy L. Martin received a bachelor degree in Physical Therapy in 1991 from S.U.N.Y. Health Science Center in Syracuse. A doctoral degree from the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences was completed June 2003 at the University of Pittsburgh. Current employment is at Duquesne University as full-time Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy and as a part-time staff-physical therapist at the Center for Rehab Services/University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's Center for Sports Medicine. Areas of interest include outcome research related to the lower extremity, specifically the hip, ankle and foot. Over 60 publications, 60 presentations and three grants have been completed related to this research agenda. Rob was the previous Vice-President of the Foot and Ankle Special Interest Group.
