Institute of Sports Science and Medicine Equipment

FSU’s Institute of Sports Sciences and Medicine (ISSM) is expanding! The state-of-the-art research laboratory is dedicated to optimizing health, body composition, and human performance. More than 750 additional square feet has been allocated to support a research-based performance training facility. The new space will accommodate growing needs to conduct exercise training studies and clinical trials.

Your support will help fund equipment needs for the space including a Precor BP/BLK Resolute Leg Press, and other equipment that will immediately impact research collaborations and further elevate our institute’s reputation.

ISSM is a collaborative effort between the College of Health and Human Sciences, FSU Athletics, College of Medicine, Nike, and its founding Partner, Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic. Since its establishment in 2010, ISSM has conducted studies on groups and individuals ranging from elite athletes to clinical populations.

We have served FSU students through laboratory experiences and internship opportunities. Expanding the institute and its research capabilities will increase ISSM’s capacity to train students on the latest technology.

Our vision is to produce high-quality and ethical research in sport nutrition and exercise performance. ISSM aims to be the authority in sport science and medicine locally, nationally, and internationally. Help us reach our goal by donating today.
