Research
Research Interests
My scholarship focuses on two main areas: 1. The impact of fatigue and fatigability on gait, walking and balance dysfunction in people with multiple sclerosis, and rehabilitation interventions to ameliorate these problems, and 2. Knowledge translation related to outcomes measurement and physical therapy practice for people with multiple sclerosis.
Current Projects: 1. "Interval vs. continuous walking training for people with multiple sclerosis: a comparison of effectiveness". 2. BANC-MS: Biomechanincal and Neuromotor Changes in Multiple Sclerosis. This study is examining changes in gait and walking associated with motor fatigue during extended periods of walking in people with multiple sclerosis. The aims of this study are to identify the patterns of change in walking over time, and elucidate the mechanisms underlying fatigue and fatigability during walking in people with multiple sclerosis.

Evan T. Cohen, PT, MA, PhD, NCS  2018 Dr. Evan T. Cohen is an Associate Professor in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program-South of Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey’s School of Health Professions. His primary teaching responsibility within the program is coordination of the neuromuscular and research tracks of the professional DPT curriculum. Dr. Cohen earned his MA in Physical Therapy from Touro College in 1992, and has been an ABPTS Neurologic Certified Specialist since 2002. Dr. Cohen earned his PhD in Health Science from Trident University International in 2010. He has presented nationally and internationally on a variety of topics related to neurorehabilitation. He is the Co-Chairperson of the Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy’s Multiple Sclerosis Outcomes Measures (MSEDGE) Task Force. His current research has two main areas of focus. The first is in examining the impact of fatigue, and gait, walking and balance dysfunction in people with multiple sclerosis, and rehabilitation interventions to ameliorate these problems. The second is knowledge translation related to outcomes measurement and physical therapy practice for people with multiple sclerosis.
