University of Nebraska at Lincoln
With total research funding of $122.5 million in 2009, UNL is considered a major research institution by the Carnegie Foundation. Operation Reentry works primarily with the university’s Dizziness & Balance Disorder Lab which evaluates patients for problems and disorders. Its research is used to create strategies to reduce the discomfort of dizziness and vertigo, while enabling patients to have fewer falls. Our primary collaborator at UNL is Sherri Jones, Ph.D. director and department chair for Special Education and Communication Disorders, whose pioneering work with vestibular (balance) disorders includes evaluating blast-induced head injury and balance problems.
