Research Descripion:

Dr Fung's research interests ranges from the study of basic sensorimotor integration mechanisms in the control of posture and balance, to the clinical application of new tools and technologies for the assessment and intervention of balance and mobility disorders. She is a William Dawson Scholar at McGill and Director of Research at the Jewish Rehabilitation Hospital, a site of the Montreal Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Rehabilitation (CRIR).
