Dr. Myer has received numerous awards for his excellence in sports medicine research. Among those awards are the American Orthopedic Society of Sports Medicine’s O’Donoghue Sports Injury Research Award (2005, 2015) and The NCAA Research Award (2010), National Strength & Conditioning Association Sports Medicine/Rehabilitation Specialist of the Year (2011), the Association of Bone & Joint Surgeons Nicolas Andry Award (2012), and the George J. Davies - James A. Gould Excellence in Clinical Inquiry Award Excellence in Clinical Inquiry Award (2014). Dr. Myer has been recognized three times by the Clint Thompson Award for Clinical Advancement in Athletic Training (2005, 2010, and 2013). Dr. Myer is currently certified with distinction by the National Strength and Conditioning Association and has been designated as a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine.

Dr. Myer is serving or has served as an investigator on several nationally funded grants focused on injury prevention and rehabilitation which have contributed multi-million research dollars in direct costs to his institution. He serves as associate/section editor for multiple medical journals and is a member of and lecturer to the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Strength and Conditioning Association, American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine and the National Athletic Training Association. Dr. Myer is also currently serving as the senior research advisor to the Micheli Center for Sports Injury Prevention at Boston Children’s Hospital and represents the United States on the Ireland Sports Surgery Clinic Research Foundation Scientific Advisory Board.
