Industry Connections

HPSSC administers research contracts in partnership with university researchers and external professional organizations and/or their consultants, or performs cutting-edge research in our core lab, MIPR in collaboration with companies, professional sports teams and leagues, foundations, associations, and other external entities.  We generate scientific evidence to identify and support marketing claims, develop, and commercialize intellectual property through research, and monitor and evaluate programs. The research undertaken at HPSSC provides reliable fundamental evidence to justify the feasibility of trials on clinical populations.


If you are interested in partnering with HPSSC, our team would be happy to meet with your organization to discuss how we can help you to address your research, evaluation, or validation goals related to human performance or sports science. We tailor projects to your individual needs, the Fast Forward Medical Innovation Business Development team works with HPSSC and industry partners to develop contracts, data use agreements, NDAs, etc. to individualize the process depending on the size of the research team, time frame needed, the number of research participants, the depth of the project, etc.

We look forward to hearing from you to discuss future collaborations!
