Ashley Kapron, PhD

Academic Office Information


Ashley was raised in Farmington Hills, Michigan until she moved to Colorado Springs her senior year in high-school. Ashley attended Colorado State University, where she graduate summa cum laude with a BS in Civil Engineering and a certificate in biomedical engineering. With an interest in clinical research and biomedical engineering, Ashley matriculated as a graduate student in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Utah.  Under the mentorship of Dr. Anderson, Ashley developed the laboratory’s high-speed dual fluoroscopy system.  After quantifying the accuracy of the system to measure in-vivo hip kinematics, Ashley applied it to study hip arthrokinematics and impingement in asymptomatic volunteers and patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI).  She also led clinical research projects investigating the prevalence of FAI in collegiate athletes, such as football players, and evaluated the potential of clinical exams to screen asymptomatic subjects for FAI. Ashley served as postdoctoral fellow in the Utah Orthopaedics Department where she directed the clinical and basic science research efforts of Drs. Stephen Aoki and Travis Maak. Ashley is currently Director of Research and Science Operations for the University of Utah Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute. Outside of work, Ashley enjoys exercising, hiking, camping, skiing, and mountain biking.
