Johns Hopkins Collaboration With the Fujita Health University
The Johns Hopkins Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) fosters international relations through academic exchange and collaborative research projects. One such long-standing collaboration is with a PM&R team from the Fujita Health University in Japan. For more than two decades, the institutions have been working together and sharing knowledge on neurological rehabilitation, swallowing disorders and the use of robotics in rehabilitation medicine.
Marlis Gonzalez-Fernandez, M.D., Ph.D.; Martin Brodsky, Ph.D.; and Jeffrey Palmer, M.D., are a few of the researchers who have participated in this exchange from the Johns Hopkins side. From Japan, we have hosted, among others, professor Eiichi Saitoh and associate professor Yoko Inamoto from the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine. The Hopkins team is currently working with the Fujita team on a swallowing research project that is using 320-row area detector computed tomography to study swallowing in 4-D.
