Cognitive Ergonomics Research Laboratory (CERL), Administration 67
The Healthcare Human Factors and Simulation Laboratory (HHFSL) is in the W21C Research and Innovation Centre, which is affiliated with the O'Brien Institute of Public Health in the Cumming School of Medicine.
Exceptional undergraduate and graduate students, who have taken Psych 425: Human Factors or similar, may be selected to work on projects and study for advanced degrees. Research goals are to design devices, environments and systems that reduce injuries and fatalities, and improve the quality of life. Student alumni work in Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, government organizations and universities.
