Landon Lempke

Post-Doctoral Fellow, HPSSC and Michigan Concussion Center

Dr. Landon Lempke joined the University of Michigan in 2022 as Postdoctoral Fellow with the Human Performance & Sport Science Center (HPSSC) and the Michigan Concussion Center (MCC). He completed his bachelor’s degree in athletic training at Illinois State University in 2016, master’s degree in kinesiology at the University of Virginia in 2017, doctoral degree in exercise science-biomechanics at the University of Georgia in 2021, and a post-doctoral research fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital in 2022. He has numerous publications in the fields of sports medicine and biomechanics as they relate to concussion.

His research has been funded by multiple past and present grants from organizations such as the National Athletic Trainers’ Association and the American College of Sports Medicine. His current research broadly aims to address how to best prevent, assess, clinically manage, and rehabilitate concussions. Specifically, his research focuses on reaction time, human movement biomechanics, objective return to play decision-making, and overall optimizing clinical practice related to concussion.

Dr. Lempke has been recognized by numerous organizations for his work, such as the American Kinesiology Association’s Doctoral Scholar Award in 2021 and the Pediatric Research in Sports Medicine (PRiSM) society’s Mininder S. Kocher Most Promising Career Award in 2019.
