Overview

Dr. Lubman is an Associate Professor of both Physical Therapy and Biokinesiology and of Physiology and Biophysics at the Keck School of Medicine at USC. In 2004, Dr. Lubman had the opportunity to teach at Imperial College in London, UK as a Visiting Professor at the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Centre. Along with his academic appointments, Dr. Lubman holds clinical positions as an attending physician at the Keck Hospital of USC, the USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and the LAC+USC Medical Center.

Dr. Lubman has received grants for thirteen research studies and has given scientific and medical lectures all across the United States and Canada. An accomplished writer, Dr. Lubman has authored over 60 peer reviewed articles for medical journals and contributed to a number of book chapters and clinical presentations.
