Dr Winstein is recognized for her outstanding achievements in research, administration, and education. She has been dedicated to finding solutions to the problems that physical therapists face in the clinic and improving the lives of patients with neurological disorders, significantly in the area of motor learning and rehabilitation of patients poststroke. Internationally recognized as a leader for her research in the area of motor learning and neuroscience, Dr Winstein has had great success in funded research in particular, which is considered unusual for the physical therapy profession. She has received 25 research awards, cumulatively totaling more than $15 million. Dr Winstein is a member of the Research and Neurology sections of the American Physical Therapy Association. She has served as a guest editor for Physical Therapy and co-chaired the program committee for III STEP, a conference sponsored by the Neurology and Pediatric sections in 2005. Between 2002 and 2005, she was instrumental in helping to establish and direct the first clinical research network in physical therapy (PTClinResNet), funded in part through a grant from the Foundation for Physical Therapy. She has given more than 100 invited presentations over the course of her career, both nationally and internationally. Dr Winstein's record of publication is further proof of the impact of her contributions to the science of motor control and learning for neurorehabilitation. She has authored 55 publications in peer-reviewed journals, with 18 as first author, and 73 published abstracts. She has authored 10 chapters in refereed volumes, another 5 in non-refereed texts, and 6 invited commentaries. In her 36-year career, Dr Winstein has been honored with some of the most prestigious awards in the physical therapy profession, including the Research Award from the Neurology Section, the Eugene Michels New Investigator Award, the Marian Williams Award for Research, and the John Maley Lecture Award. She was elected a Catherine Worthingham Fellow in 2003.
