Peter J. Lisman, Ph.D., ATC, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Kinesiology
within the College of Health Professions at Towson University. Dr. Lisman previously
completed a postdoctoral research fellowship for the Human Performance Laboratory
at Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences where he was involved with
numerous research projects focused on optimizing the health and human performance
of today’s Warfighters. His present research focus is on the use of functional movement
assessments to assess risk of injury in both military and athletic populations. Dr.
Lisman is a certified Athletic Trainer with clinical experience working in the high
school, collegiate, and industrial settings. His primary professional affiliations
are with the American College of Sports Medicine and the National Athletic Trainers’
