About Us

The Human Performance Center serves primarily as a research facility, partnering with other research labs, scientists, and companies around UCSF, and the entire Bay Area, to carry out studies in the areas of biomechanics, exercise physiology, and sleep & athletic performance. Our state-of-the-art equipment, and staff expertise, enables us to handle a diverse range of research opportunities, from knee osteoarthritis to prostate cancer, and more.

In addition to research the HPC also offers testing services to athletes of all levels. Having your gait analyzed by our RunSafe team can help improve performance & reduce injury, and information from a performance evaluation can be used to tailor a heart rate-based training plan to your specific goals & needs.
