Barry T. Bates, Ph.D., has been the director of biomechanics at the University of Oregon since 1974. His areas of expertise include lower extremity function in running and landing, and research design and methodology. Over the years, Dr. Bates has been a strong advocate of a multidisciplinary approach to the study of human performance.
In addition to his directorship of the UO Biomechanics Laboratory, established in 1974, he was founder and is president of the Eugene-based Bio-Dynamics Foundation. His honors have included invitations to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, in 1979; in the same year, participation in the International Relations Delegation to the Soviet Union, Moscow, in his capacity as member of the American College of Sports Medicine; and in 1988, a visiting professorship at the Beijing Institute of Physical Education. In 1984, Bates was chosen by Runner's World to the Sportsmedicine All-Star Team, becoming one of the twenty-five international sports medicine experts named by peers for "contributions to the physical and emotional health of elite athletes and recreational runners." Bates also consults for a number of fitness equipment companies. Before coming to Eugene, Bates taught at the University of Massachusetts and at Blair Academy in Blairstown, NJ.
