FCF-Sponsored Research
Through the Lincoln College Endowed Chair at USF



In October 2007, John Mayer, D.C., Ph.D. was appointed the Lincoln College Endowed Chair in Biomechanical and Chiropractic Research at the University of South Florida (USF). He came to USF from San Diego, CA where, for the previous seven years, he directed research of the U.S. Spine & Sport Foundation, a nonprofit research and education organization. He was also an adjunct research faculty member in the Department of Biology at San Diego State University. To read more about Dr. Mayer’s appointment click here.

Vision

  • Develop a world-class, multidisciplinary research program for chiropractic care, back pain, and related musculoskeletal disorders at USF Health.
  • Establish a model for chiropractic-medical partnerships in public universities.
  • Provide much-needed community and societal support for those suffering from back pain and related disorders.

The appointment of Dr. Mayer was an historic first, establishing the only chiropractic and biomechanical research center at a state, tax-supported university.

The Florida Chiropractic Foundation and Florida Chiropractic Association were highly instrumental in raising the $1 million to endow this chair, along with the Lincoln Chiropractic Education and Research Fund. Today, the Florida Chiropractic Foundation

continues its annual contribution of $40,000 to the University of South Florida to help underwrite the efforts and research of the Lincoln Chair.
