The mission of the Korey Stringer Institute is to provide research, education, advocacy and consultation to maximize performance, optimize safety and prevent sudden death for the athlete, warfighter and laborer.
KSI serves the needs of active individuals and athletes at all levels –– youth, high school, college, professional, people who are physically active, recreational athletes –– and those who supervise and care for these individuals. Components of these services include: consultations, advocacy, education, research, athlete testing, and mass-market outreach.
The Korey Stringer Institute is housed in the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources at the University of Connecticut. UConn's Department of Kinesiology has a strong tradition and reputation as one of the leading institutions studying health and safety issues for athletes and the physically active.
KSI is partnered with the National Football League (NFL), Gatorade, National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA), Camelbak, Kestrel, Mission, HeartSmart.com and Eagle Pharmaceuticals to further advance its efforts and goals.
