The clinical and research interests of Carolyn L. Kinney, M.D., are in the area of medical and neurological rehabilitation. This includes exercise strategies in settings of complex medical illnesses, such as cancer or after solid organ or bone marrow transplantation. Dr. Kinney is also researching topics in neurorehabilitation, including the use of technology such as robotics and neuro orthoses to enhance recovery after stroke. She has a particular focus on functional recovery after stroke, encompassing use of robotics, transcranial magnetic stimulation and neuro orthoses.
Through her research, Dr. Kinney hopes to improve the functional status of patients who have suffered strokes or who have residual functional impairments related to complex medical illnesses, including cancer. She aims to understand modifiable factors influencing neurological recovery and to promote universal valid outcome assessments to facilitate collaborative research in medical and neurorehabilitation.
