Through ongoing research at Dodd Hall, we can better understand the nature of injuries, treatment and responses to treatment and improve our methods of returning each patient to independence. The Ohio State University Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is awarded substantial research funding each year to pioneer advances in rehabilitation therapies and create nationally recognized programs to enhance independence and quality of life.
