TBL graduate students Jason Kim, Sara Moshage, and John Shanley participated in a local run. John was first in his age group for the 5k, Jason was second in his age group for the 10k, and Sara got third in her age group.
Prof. Kersh attended the ORS Musculoskeletal Biology Workshop and presented work done by TBL alum Lydia Bakalova in collaboration with Thomas Andersen’s group at the University of Southern Denmark. The work was well received and Prof. Kersh received an ORS Alice J Lee Award for scientific merit.
Prof. Kersh presented the work of TBL MS student, Lydia Bakalova, during the bone biomechanics session at the Summer Biomechanics, Bioengineering and Biotransport Conference. The talk centered on our investigations of cortical bone pore mechanics and investigating structure-strength relationships using finite element models. Great job Lydia!!
Prof. Kersh received a Burroughs Wellcome Fund Research Collaboration Travel Grant which will allow the lab to continue the exciting collaboration with biologists Thomas Andersen and his group in Denmark studying bone mechanobiology. Thanks to the BWF for supporting our work.
Hyunggwi Song, PhD candidate studying bone mechanics and adaptation, presented his poster “A non-invasive method for predicting the effects of muscle force on gait-induced bone formation” at the UIUC IGB Fellows Symposium. Great job Hyunggwi!
Congratulations to Lydia Bakalova on turning in her Masters thesis, “Relating cortical bone mechanics to intracortical pore morphology, distribution and remodeling history within the fibula diaphysis” and to Kevin Brenner, TBL undergraduate volunteer, on his acceptance to Stanford.
Congratulations to John Shanley for winning the Smith Outstanding TA Award and Liz Livingston, who will start work with the TBL in Fall 2017, on the honor of being named a Knight of St. Patrick. Both awards are given to students who represent leadership and excellence in character. Congratulations John and Liz!
