About Scott Galster
Dr. Galster is the Director of Human Performance for the WVU Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute and a Professor in the Department of Neuroscience in the WVU School of Medicine. Dr. Galster is also an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at the Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources.
Dr. Galster earned his undergraduate degree in Psychology from the Ohio State University and a Master’s Degree and PhD in Experimental Psychology from the Catholic University of America in Washington DC.
Dr. Galster most recently worked at the United States Air Force Research Laboratory where he was the Senior International Focal Point for the 711 Human Performance Wing and the Chair of the Working Group for the Office of the Secretary of Defense Human Systems Community of Interest. Prior to those posts, Dr. Galster was the Chief of the Applied Neuroscience Branch.
Dr. Galster focuses on all aspects of human performance research, including physical, cognitive, behavioral, biomarker, physiological, environmental, and social measures used to assess an individual’s or team’s functional state. The focus of these efforts is to improve recovery and readiness and increase or optimize performance across multiple groups including Athletes, Military, Patients and the general Population (AMP2). He will be responsible for developing and maintaining several new initiatives in these areas, to advance the state of the art in research, and improve people’s lives.
