The Analysis of Dance and Movement (ADAM) Center, originally Soar Research, was founded in 1995 to analyze the movement demands of dance, develop new strategies to prevent injury, and develop more effective rehabilitation protocols following injury to benefit dancers. In 1998, it was invited to affiliate with Long Island University. Renamed the ADAM Center in 2002, our mission is to further multidisciplinary collaboration in research areas that include movement analysis, ergonomics and epidemiology, and prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal injury. We serve as a biomechanics and wellness resource to the Long Island University Brooklyn campus and the New York dance community.

The Intercultural Institute on Human Development and Aging was inaugurated in 1996, with funding from the Long Island University Administration. The mission of the Institute, which has a multi-ethnic and multi-disciplinary advisory board, is to promote and enable research, training, and consultation on the role of culture and ethnic factors in human development and aging. Its basic goals are to:

  • Identify socioeconomic, psychological, health, and educational factors that affect the course of growth and development within cultural groups, including impediments and facilitators.
  • Serve as a resource to community leaders in designing intervention programs to foster goals that promote positive growth and development.
  • Advise policy makers at the Federal, State, and local level on issues of human development in ethnic groups - especially with respect to children and the elderly - and generate data-based, informed recommendations that accurately reflect the conditions of the lives and circumstances of families and communities.
  • Provide intensive and rigorous training in research methods in the social and biological sciences for undergraduate biomedical and social science majors, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows.
